AKA. When Egos Run Wild.
I got it into my head that I invented the concept of Palentine’s Day. Granted, it was an intentional play on Parks and Recreation’s “Galentine’s Day,” so I knew I wasn’t reinventing the wheel, however… For a recent event I pitched the idea of PALentine’s: a celebration of friendship. Turns out Urban Dictionary has listed this title as in-use since 2013, so I am not an originator. But I did make Palentine’s cards. Here they are:
I’ve been doing brush lettering ever since I took an excellent workshop with Ligatures YYZ this summer. “Friendship” and “Love” are hand-lettered, and then hand-traced in Illustrator; the other words are typography.
I hope everyone celebrates their friendships this month as well as their romances. Happy Pal/Gal/Valentine’s day!
