i can find inspiration in you...

unless you can dip it in ranch.


font, fonts and more fonts!

fontin' it up all day long!

fonts are a big part of my life...

mostly organic and free form... i stay away...far, far away from clean, linear and sterile lines... i can't live like that.


i love you, art nouveau.


i found this... and i like it!

gemologist by day, goldsmith by night, jewelry designer 24/7 and font doodler in between times.

i've designed many of the pieces in Dallas Maynard Jewelry by dissecting my 'font doodles' and breaking them down into 'functional art' .

for joe <3.>

jammms. oh so sweet.

brian wilson or bust.

i believe in lennon;
in yoko;

in chillin', chillin', mindin' my business.

His Babe.

hey 1969,

come back! i want to ride you to woodstock.

no rainbow horses in the collection, but i'll see what i can do!

do it up.

i have seen things...
i'm from middle America.

this guy isn't.
