So yesterday was apparently the anniversary of the premiere of this gem of a movie on the #Disney channel in 93. I remember watching this movie and falling in love with it immediately, I had the biggest crush on #ThackeryBinx and Max, I was super scared of the intro song, and I Put A Spell on You was my jam. And every year since I’d look forward to watching the reairings and eventually convinced my parents to buy the VHS (remember those??) #HocusPocus is still one of favorite movies of all time.
Here’s some first shots of Zax Sans and Zax Layers—custom typefaces—that we got to design with @realzaxbys! 🐓There was a number of different base styles along with a full-on layered system to give it a signage feel when needed. The family has roots in Futura as that had been a part of the Zaxby’s for some time now.
Working with the design team for this project was a dream ✨ Can’t wait to share more!
Had a great weekend teaching my Casual and Script lettering with these 7 talented artists taking their first steps with the brush and Mahl Stick at the July Workshop in LA!
Writing single stroke lettering with a brush is no easy task when you're a beginner but these guys took huge steps while learning the fundamental brush strokes and techniques required to go away and continue practicing these alphabets effectively.
Well done and thanks everyone, it's always a joy to meet new artists with a passion for lettering!!
Next Workshop is AUGUST 17-18th. Link in bio. 🖌🖌🖌🖌🖌🖌🖌🖌
