Daily Traces for a Better World

The Daily Glyph is a collaborative website born out of love for Typography and the idea of simple daily sketches focusing on (but not limited to) type and letters. Its purpose is to encourage artists to share their daily traces and inspire many more to do the same. Enjoy!

Stay Cool

Here’s a shirt design I created for WildFireTees.com, a site created to benefit the victims of the Waldo Canyon Fires in Colorado Springs (my hometown). Here it is from pencils, to marker, to vector. Stay Cool Colorado, stay cool…

Mamasaurus

I usually try to make the most of the cards I send to people and if I have the time, I try to experiment with the artwork on those cards. This one was no exception. Happy Birthday Mamasaurus.
