Hello Friends!

Today is a big day for Molly Jacques Illustration -- Today is the launch of Great Lakes Lettering, a foundry collaboration between myself and font designer Dathan Boardman.

Keep an eye out for more hand lettered fonts soon to be released!  Our first font, called FROSTED, is up for sale now.

Paired with hand illustrated wreaths and flourishes, this font is a folksy handwriting that mimics the natural stroke of 
the pointed calligraphy pen. 

You can purchase FROSTED here today!

For any of you out there who follow my Pinterest, you might have noticed my new board "Brand Inspired".  The reason for my Pinterest expansion is because of this new gem.... an actual studio space!  I've been working from home for a while now, and have been complaining to my husband, Cody, how I need some social interaction (talk to any from-home freelancers and I'm sure they will agree to some days never even walking outside!).  That said, Cody (who is also a fine artist and grad student in the Kendall College MFA program) and I are moving all our artsy things into this new space in the heart of Grand Rapids.

For anyone living in Michigan (especially GR), expect some fun new lettering workshops here in the future along with figure painting demos and classes from Cody!  This new space definitely needs a little TLC, but it'll be up and running in no time at all =)
