One of my favorite views - watching other people learning my craft for the first time. Looking forward to the second half of the summer and workshop lineup. As I mentioned earlier in the month, our first Corona workshop will take place next month at the new Cursive in the Dos Lagos shopping center!

A couple logo designs that were pitched for @fitnessista 's four week Summer Shape Up that started yesterday! Check out her blog post to learn more about the challenge (I'm seriously thinking about giving it a go myself) and see the colorful variation that she went with.
Attention aspiring calligraphers and previous workshop attendees! Curious how to get this cool ombre watercolor effect with pointed pen calligraphy? This is just one fun technique I will be covering in my second workshop from my Modern Calligraphy Workshop Series at @m.lovewell on July 30th . While this isn't an advanced workshop, we just ask that you have taken one pointed pen class or workshop prior. Feel free to message me for any questions! To sign up, visit the link in my profile, or @m.lovewell 's workshop page.
Now that our youngest is feeding himself and starting to draw (be still my creative beating heart!) it's become apparent that he is going to be a lefty! Both being from families of righties, and lettering being focus of my business, it's been sparking many nerdy conversations in the Mattox household. Did you know that left handed people only make up approximately 10% of the worlds population? I was always of the belief that those who were left handed were secretly brilliant masterminds who always saw everything different than the rest of us.....What about you? Are you a righty or a lefty? Are you a creative thinker? More analytical? 🤔
Launched and live! The new site for @ashleygaughaninteriors is up today, go check it out! This is definitely one of my all time favorite projects to work on, and I'm looking forward to working with Ashley again later this year on something else exciting that's in the works. ;)
Our workshop at @m.lovewell is less than a week away and there are still a few seats available! Sign up through link in profile. 📷: @heathershanephoto
Sundays used to be about brunch, Bloody Marys and the beach. These days, it's about family time, laundry, and never ending house projects. Boy have times changed 😏. What is everyone else up to today? Tell me you're doing something wild and crazy so I can live vicariously through you 😎 Although, I wouldn't trade this new norm for anything else.
Another out-take from this fun project that I am working away on today.
I'm going to keep sharing these until my Peony luck runs out. This last bunch was unreal, and this photo doesn't do them justice. I just wish I could put them out in our house without our cat ripping them and eating them to shreds, does anyone else have this struggle? For now I'll just hoard them in my office. Happy weekend and first of July friends!! . . . . #givemeallthepeonies #studioshots #stilllife #floral #luminouslines #wannabephotographer
We are excited to add an awesome LA venue to our workshop lineup this summer! Join us for a fun filled Modern Calligraphy workshop at @aroraboheme on August 27th at 4:30 pm. Head on over to their site to sign up!
Congrats to these lovely ladies on celebrating the one year anniversary of their opening of @m.lovewell and their 100th workshop! Fun fact: they actually took one of my last workshops before going on maternity leave when I taught at @ohhellofriend - before deciding to start their own shop! I'm so glad they did because they have turned into one of my favorite spots to teach at, and not just because they pretend to laugh at my awful jokes (that I have already told a million times), but they are genuinely great people to be around, and I'm pretty obsessed with their shop. If you haven't had a chance to check out this gem in Downtown Santa Ana, I highly recommend it! Or even better, come sign up for our Modern Calligraphy Series! It's always a good time. Our next workshop is on July 9th. Be sure to head over to @m.lovewell 's website to sign up. 📸: @heathershanephoto
Another one bites the dust but I am still loving the direction this new startup is taking with their branding. The site won't be launching until September, but it will be well worth the wait. I'm also learning so much about the beauty industry throughout this project, it's just so fascinating how far things have advanced over the years - there are so many new techniques that are new to me. Or maybe I just need to get out more. . . . . . #anotheronebitesthedust #cuttingroomfloor #logo #branding #design #concept #webdesign #art #beautybiz #beauty #beautyblogger
