Lettering Life is my blog of simple type illustrations based on personal day-to-day experiences. It was a project done for my last semester of school, so I apologize for the amount of complaining.
 
The process was taking what my highlight of the day was and to make a lettering piece out of it. Almost all but two of them were drawn on paper, scanned, and edited. The other two were drawn digitally with a tablet.
 
Everything here is pretty much verbatim, but I'd recommend going to the Lettering Life blog for the full experience.

For the past week, I’ve desperately tried to locate my “delivered” package from Fedex, but I officially gave up today. I wonder where those business cards are now.
 
EDIT: Over a month has passed, but I’m getting a check soon! YEAH, GO JUSTICE!

I could have technically left my house, but I felt chained to my chair until I finished work. My excuse was the blizzard outside and not wanting to put on real clothes.

A mild blizzard happened here in New York and we now face the hated post-snow aftermath of slippery sidewalks, large puddles and dirty ice.

Even though I lost my favorite scarf at the office, my interview went really well! I am very pleased.
 
I’m still looking for that scarf though.

My nerves are in overdrive today. In dedication, here’s something my friend tells me occasionally.

I do not recommend watching The Giant Mechanical Man, although it makes for great commentary with a friend.

Nothing is more meditative to me than taking a nice nap.

I can almost feel my brain being physically exhausted. TIME TO SLEEP.

Sometimes when I’m completely alone when working, I’ll sing and dance in my chair.

I got the job!!
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2013
 
My brain has progressively turned into mush because I’ve worked nonstop Friday through Sunday. WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF??

Caffeine doesn’t do anything for me.

These days are sadly becoming more rare as the semester goes by. FAST FORWARD TO GRADUATION, PLEASE.

It seems like this year so far I’ve been particularly more keen and realizing a lot of things.

When I paint for my cousin and her fiancé, I am paid in mashed potatoes.

I’m so overwhelmed and stressed out by the work that needs to be finished. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHghghd.

Finally, some nice weather! I think everyone’s a bit happier today.

I cannot fathom how people can be so douchey. Now no one’s perfect, but the Golden Rule should be used a little more.
 
I actually should’ve made something positive, such as “Be Nice,” but dammit, I was frustrated.

The weather suddenly jumped to 82°F today and I was reminded of how much I abhor summer with a fiery passion.

Yesterday, I had the concentration of a golfer and somehow managed to spend 15 hours on homework.
 
Naturally for today, I had an incredibly short attention span and surfed the internet all day.

I saw this Daft Punk teaser earlier and got so excited (again!) for their upcoming album.
 
Today’s piece is based on one of my favorites, “Digital Love.”
