So this was my office yesterday afternoon. Grand Marnier hosted a dinner and requested that I provide the on-site calligraphy for the event. It was my pleasure to oblige. Adrenaline was high as my work began amidst the event planning & restaurant staff prep, but it was fun and they liked my work. So sorry, but of course this was a quick iPhone pic as I was leaving before guests arrived. Not quite photography competition material, but I got a picture.
I'm really trying to get better about consistently posting my work. Work gets so crazy that a lot of times it doesn't happen. Must get better about that. Cheers!
Last Fall was absolutely insane....in absolutely wonderful ways. I had a lot of transition personally and professionally in a positive direction. During that time, I calligraphed design work for a few wine labels in Napa under the Slinging Ink commercial side of my business. Business was so crazy that I honestly forgot about these until I saw them online. Here is one of the ones that was chosen for Regusci wines. Looking forward to receiving pictures of the other labels that I calligraphed earlier that year. Cheers!
I love when clients plan ahead :) This client had a bottle engraved for her wedding but also had a 2nd bottle engraved for their 1st anniversary. It engraved beautifully and I know that their first year will be even more beautiful!. Cheers!
Quite often, I am asked exactly how I hand engrave wine bottles. I made a video about it. If you'd like to see it, here it goes!

The latest bottle request. Simple but very cool!
I am a firm believer of the Latin phrase that means 'in wine, there is truth'. Glad that this client feels the same way. Cheers!
