Operation Honeybean! Hand-drawn Typography...

Hello honeybees! So in light of my recent career announcement, I had many people offer up the idea of starting a KickStarter fund for people to help support my self-employed dreams. While I truly appreciate all of your sweet gestures, words, and encouragement at my hesitation, I simply do not feel comfortable doing such a thing. While I fully understand the reason KickStarter (and various other funding websites) exist, I don't feel comfortable accepting money when my endeavor is one that will (hopefully!) generate me profit. If the circumstances were different, perhaps I wouldn't be so quick to write it off. Even when I said I didn't really like the idea, so many of you jumped in and said that it would be wonderful and you'd love to support my endeavor, and that means the world to me! But rather than just giving me your money, how about I earn it? 

I mentioned in my post that 100% of the profits from Hive + Honey, Kaelah's Closet, and at least 50% from sponsoring Little Chief Honeybee would go to fund my little dream... well, since I'm going at it alone, I need to get creative in other ways to help fund it. So here I am! Presenting you with my newest creation! Hand-drawn typography!

(this typeface is not one of them sadly! :P)

I loved making my own typefaces in college and I really really love scribbling them down in my Little Book of Ideas. I formatted them out as a typeface for myself and thought, why not offer them to you, too?! You're obviously design savvy people! I've spent oh so many hours drawing up some typefaces and I will be releasing one at a time. The process is simple... you just purchase the typeface via PayPal and it will be emailed to you within 24 hours. You just download the file and install the font! Then you're free to use it on Word, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc! You can change the size, color, opacity... you name it! And of course, 100% of the proceeds will go directly into the mobile boutique fund! 

I had a lot of fun making them and I'll continue to work toward new ones daily! If you have an idea of something you'd like to see, let me know! I'm even working on a few sets of "Webding" type symbols! Cutesy stuff! 

Up for grabs first is a typeface I first started my sophomore year of college! I drew it for my Loquat album-redesign and it's been my "go to" style for doodling ever since! Feel free to purchase below!

PS; I can also make you a custom signature (like mine!) using your handwriting, mine, or a typeface for just $5! Email me at if you're interested!
