This spring has been very hectic for us over here at the Eliza Gwendalyn studios. From launching our newest Studioways font in collaboration with my talented friend and peer Virginia Lucas Hart (that pays ode to her classic calligraphy style) to our very special fashion sketch event with the ladies of St John Knits at their Americana location. We kept things fun and creative!
Hart was a passion project in the making, not just for Virginia which was a first time launch for the designer, but for myself and Jim Lyles as well. We had never collaborated with a third party artist. Usually 3 heads can be a little overwhelming because with 3 heads there are usually 3 opinions but fortunately for us we made quite the trio! #SquadGoals at it’s finest and I think Hart is a perfect symbol of it, making it to MyFonts.com HOTTEST font list in the first month of launching was a HUGE honor – this is now the third Studioways font that made it on the list making us 3 for 3. The pressure is on for our next font which we will be launching at the end of the summer. You can purchase Hart on our Studioways website, Myfonts or CreativeMarket!
I had the loveliest time with the ladies over at St John Knits in the Americana shopping mall on long island for Mother’s Day weekend. As dreary as the weather was we kept it bright and fun inside with champs, fruits and fashion! I had the awesome opportunity to sketch the customers in their chic St John Knit purchases. It was hard to leave the store without a purchase of my own! If you haven’t already checked out their resort and summer line, you must. I especially adored the white & blue floral tracksuit I got to sketch from their newest collection.
