Anybody that knows me, knows I’m a huge sucker for anything extra tiny. So I was was too excited when I found these mini sketchbooks when I was in Amsterdam a few weeks ago. Of course, I bought one in every colour 🙋🏼‍♀️

This Tuesday I’m celebrating Carbonus Day, and the element contained in all life on earth. Alternately: the day you get enough of a bonus to buy a new car.
Photo by my talented friend @davidfigueroaphoto who persevered in shooting through my shaky hand movements, and me trying to keep this tiny carbon-filled rock stack balanced. .

HT440 / Doing my best to bring that spring feeling back to NY. Have a shabbat shell-om.
Oh and if one of you wants this she’ll, tag a friend to wish them a relaxing weekend. I’ll mail it to one of y’all next week. ✌️

My life story in a nutshell-sized novel: “It Happened,” is what I call it. But also subtitled “with an exclamation point”. Because, well, IT HAPPENED!

This #typeforants #goodtypetuesday was drawn on a #miniature accordion book I made from scratch.

When I saw @calligrabasics new lettering challenge this week was MINI, I literally ran to get my tools to start! I am in love with all things tiny! 🤗 I started doing dime-sized and realized I could go smaller, so went the size of the circumference of my eraser. This is one of my favourite Shakespearean quotes, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 🎥 Swipe ➡️ to see a process video in real time! (P.S. I might be blind now) .

HT430 / Two #goodtypetuesday s in one day? YUP YUP YUP. Knowing that there’s a yom hadash baofek יום חדש באופק, a new day is on the horizon is such an important message, especially when the horizon is so far away, making it harder to see. This may be a #typeforants, but it’s a reminder for people. Thank you leaders, friends, (and @goodtype too) for speaking up and keeping up hope.

Today marks 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯 episodes of @aidpodcast. If you’ve read some of my insta stories lately, you already know how much Mark and co helped me grow and become a more thoughtfully creative person. I won’t try to sell you on @aidpodcast because the conversation does all the work already. Go give it a listen, and in one year from today let me know how it went. Happy 700, Mark and friends!

“Fanani banani” פאנני בנני. This week #goodtypetuesday asks for our personal mantra, and I either don’t have one or have a billion. Regardless: fanani, fab, excellent, and awesome are things you’ll hear me say regularly. Life is nuts, crazy things happen. I make the best of it by making it the best. (swipe to zoom) #typeforants .

HT406 / Moadim L’simha מועדים לשמחה, friends. Make today a "time to rejoice,” no matter how small. This is white ink on a hadas #הדס (myrtle) leaf, a plant that is part of the #sukkot traditions. .

HT404 / When I saw that #GoodtypeTuesday is all about #foodtype, I knew I had to try something new. So I took a cherry tomato, a banana, and celery leaves, and married them all together to form sababa סבבה. “Sababa” is the definitive exclamation of agreement and happiness. It's like rad, fab, awesome, for sure, yeah, and alriight wrapped into one.

I’m feeling pretty sababa right now.
How about you?

HT390-4 / What do a grain of rice, pins, clay, an almond, and a pencil tip have in common? They all have the word "shalom" שלום (peace) written on them.
I hope that amidst the chaos right now this serves as a reminder that no matter how different you are from those around you, you have the power to make peace. Activism matters; it makes a difference. I myself am proof of that.

I used to hate, I grew up not understanding other people, and having no idea what it means to be and live amongst an eclectic group of people. It took many years of guidance from a fab uncle, my friends at MGSA, and conversations with my incredibly talented wife for me to finally learn to empathize. To see how everyone is different, unique, but also equally deserving. To stop myself from automatically-triggered biased thinking, and just do my best to be good to others.
I challenge you to do the same. Learn, and teach. And spread shalom. It makes a difference.

HT378 / While sharpening pencils for all the @dappernotes orders, the shavings were coming out as these delicate little flowers. Of course I saved some to write on, and boy did I break most of the fragile things while trying to get some ink on them. In any event, this is shishi שישי (Friday), with the Hebrew version of #TGIF inked around the flower in this super #authentic layout. Have a fab weekend, and I hope to see some of you this Sunday at the NYC #summerofsketching meetup! .

A closeup of the pattern, essentially clusters of tiny versions of השראה. Kind of like atoms of inspiration, like this very community I'm so grateful to be a part of.
Make sure to check out my previous post for a small sampling of people who inspire me around here.

Prepping the next installment of "people who inspire me" post, with a #typeforants pattern. I think I may end up doing quite a bit of these. There are just so many gosh darn talented people out here.

I’m hopping on the tail end of @36daysoftype’s banwagon, combining three things I love: #HebrewType, #36daysoftype and #typeforants

For the next nine days I’ll be making super tiny type that’s both a Hebrew letter, and its numerical equivalent (yes, that’s a thing) all in a single character. Bring along your magnifying glass!

First up: the letter Alef (א)
