Sara and Filippo, the new happy bride and groom, chose to have a slightly retro style wedding. The letterpress coasters made for them were printed in basic black--simple but cool!

Off the grid, not really...just working overtime on organizing a 1st. ed. Happy Maker Station creative market. So, trying to be as inclusive as possible, I thought it a good idea to extend being creative to other parts of the community. Here’s a snap shot of a local bartender and his interpretation of a Happy Maker Station cocktail: "Fresco e Carico--Fresh and Forceful.”

It’s been a lovely game not having a camera to document my work. I have such an affinity with my 3 megapixel camera that I have been ever so slow to update, even if it was time... In the end, I was forced--pushed to update as my old camera had a battery leakage, and it’s still not known if the battery is on the market to replace.
So, this is the first published image with the new compact camera. It’s a picture of an ancient and typically Italian frescoed room dating from the 1700’s. It’s also the location of the creative market coming in May!

A Farm Fresh Letterpress Easter! Buona Pasqua! It was really important to get something done for Easter this year, but I had absolutely no time to do a more formal design. And twice as tricky is the fact I am without camera right now and don’t own a smart phone. So, here is my play time with the mini ipad on loan. Some quick brainstorming and thought it the perfect time to try out Vine, the Twitter application to share videos on their own site or Facebook. I managed to print a few proofs along side some super fresh Italian style farm eggs. They happen to be a little on the brownish side which kinda goes along with the whole chocolate egg theme children receive here at Easter.
