Family is Forever

Family is Forever

by Simon Ålander

Family is Forever. This phrase is just as simple as the piece itself. But yet so true. I’m lucky enough to be a part of a wonderful family. I love them. Forever.

Now Or Never

Now Or Never

by Luke Ritchie

I felt drawn to this phrase particulcarly because theres so much going on in my life right now, and have a few lifestyle adjustments I would like to make. I feel that if it doesnt happen this year, at this stage of life, it might never happen.So, im using this piece as personal motivation to make the changes I wish to see in my own life - hope this somehow imspires, or at very least pleases the eyes. Ciao for now!

Keep Calm & Carry On

Keep Calm & Carry On

by Joshua Bullock

This meme seems like it’s been rehashed and commercialized so many ways using more traditional type and layout so I wanted to give it a bit of a vintage, Paris-subway-poster vibe. The original has a woman which frames the lettering and has some extra throw-back to the period, but ultimately the focus is on the phrase and the lettering so the piece evolved. Process shots below - Enjoy!

Keep Living

Keep Living

by Drew Melton

A friend of mine uses this phrase from time to time. A lot of times I can find myself procrastinating and putting off the important things because I’m caught up with my fears or the past. This statement is a constant reminder to me to keep creating and dreaming.

A Beautiful Thing

A Beautiful Thing

by Joshua Bullock

For my first piece on Phraseology, I went looking for something that spoke to my feelings about life and how words can evoke those emotions. My wife’s always harping on how we’re all living such fast-paced lives that we aren’t respecting aesthetics in architecture, living spaces, whatever. Honestly? She’s right. There are so many things of beauty all around us; sometimes we just need to stop and take a moment to appreciate them. And if they happen to not exist where we are, we get to participate in the most beautiful thing of all: we get to create them.

Anchors Away

Anchors Away

by Drew Melton

I’ve been really stoked about nautical work lately. Most of what I have been working on has been Anchors and whatnot. For this piece I wanted to do a full ship! This illustration was done completely by hand. My favorite way to work. Check out the process photos to see more detail!

Home is You

Home is You

by Simon Ålander

It’s a phrase with only three simple words but in combination yet so meaningful. Look at it. Think about it. What does these words mean to you? This phrase gives me a feeling of security and affiliation and I guess that inspired me to pick this phrase and try to make it look beautiful.
