Today’s inspiration comes from someone I know well. I met Brendan Lloyd on our first nervous day together at Shillington College Masterclass in 2011. With a great big smile, he introduced himself and I instantly felt at ease.
Brendan’s just an all round lovely guy who seems to make friends with everyone he meets. He’s also a talented musician and graphic designer and since finishing the Masterclass, Brendan has gone on to master the art of hand lettering of the chalky kind.
For a recent special ceremony with his gorgeous girlfriend Sarah, Brendan created 10 bespoke hand lettered blackboard signs, each taking about 3-4 hours to draw. He also designed and letterpressed (with Sarah’s help) the couple’s invites at The Hungry Workshop, and sang to Sarah the sweet song ‘Sew My Name’ by Josh Pyke at the ceremony.
Sarah, you are one lucky gal. Congratulations to you both – after 13 years together you are clearly made for each other.
