My mom, Jojo as people call her now, was the one who really got me interested in type. Calligraphy, more-so. She has the most magnificent array of handwriting styles, and with basically no practice, she can write “supercalafredgalisticixpialadocious” and not even bat an eye. Watching her fill out forms or write me sick notes for school was like a special, hypnotic treat as a kid… and probably still would be. Thanks, Mama! And happy early mother’s day, too!

Fo this next project I’m brewing, I think this is the first typeface I’m going to try and use — by hand, of course. I can only hope my mama will be proud.

Oh, the plans I have for you…
