I drew a cover for the great new Sean Watkins album, “All I Do is Lie.” So happy! Sean’s guitar playing is all over my newest album, “Love Without Fear”; it’s only fair that I be all over his :)
wordlesslywatching asked: I just wanted to say what a big fan I am of your music, Free Life is constantly listened to, and your drawings are equally impressive, I've always been interested in calligraphy yet haven't had the chance to try it out myself
I got heavily into calligraohy because of an illness in my family. Had a lot of time waiting around in a hospital for many weeks. Just to stay sane.
thekathryngrace asked: Your work with Taylor Swift was amazing! Treacherous is one of my favorite songs
Thank you! She is brilliant. I live the songs we wrote.
noxso asked: If you were to recommend a lettering/calligraphy starting kit for someone, what would you pick?
I use Pilot Parallel pens
Looked up lots of alphabets online and copied them over and over
“Blackletter” is a great place to start
Find an alphabet by Seb Lester on tumblr - he is a great calligrapher
For a while now I’ve been creating these illuminated set lists as a way to help me map out my shows. And at the end of each of my Words & Music shows, we hand out copies to members of the audience so that they have a cool souvenir of our evening. Here’s the latest one I’ve made for my “Words & Music by Dan Wilson” tour this month.
