New Work: One Letter Monograms
Historically, the first monograms consisted on one decorative letter usually an initial. Today we think of monograms as consisting of multiple intertwining, decorative letters that normally stand for your first, middle and last names.
Over the holidays, I wanted to offer a more affordable custom monogram option for a few friends (and myself) to give as gifts to loved ones. The single letters where a lot of fun to draw because I could really focus on the form of the letter and add in decorative flourishes to fit the personalities of the recipients. In the end, the monograms were printed in an eggplant purple with thermography for personal stationery.
