Mangoes

Summers should be full of delicious things in your mouth. We’re at the end of Summer mango season here in North America, so we did a small run of prints to celebrate it’s coming to a close.

Print your letters. Here’s how you do it. Lettering Strokes by J.Gilman I first learned the proper ways of printing letters when I took a drafting class in college.

DANG

My first martial arts instructor was fond of the phrase “Practice makes permanent.” He was right, of course. People in general are terrible, often because of their bad habits. Good habits are one of the best ways to improve yourself to the point where others can stand to be around you for more than a few minutes. Brushing your teeth, bathing, exercising, introducing yourself to new people, making eye contact when you speak to them, and pretending to be interested in … Read More
