hand lettering from ohio

1I am not a big fan of posting pictures side by side from the same state, it kinda defeats the purpose of this blog but there have been a few times when I have made an exception–today is one of them. Big thanks to my former-student-turned-friend Danielle Chavarria for sharing her picture taken in Marietta, Ohio! I’m such a sucker for hand lettering, throw in what the weather does to the letters and I’m pretty much swooning. When I saw her picture, it reminded me of a picture I took 200 miles west of Marietta (and the business was founded 11 years earlier!) in Cincinnati. Japp’s is a bar and they have tried to stick with the look of the hand lettering for some of their branding but nothing looks as good as what’s above their door. It just doesn’t get more awesome than this:2
