“the tree was happy,” giving tree inspired lettering. my friend jay commissioned me to do this piece for a friend of his who had just given birth to a baby boy. the lettering style is based on the illustration of the tree from Shel Silverstein’s classic children’s book. congrats mom and dad and thanks jay for the opportunity to create this work!

The co-founder of my company, Cheryl, had a lovely little boy a few months back. I’m not the kind of person to just give a gift you can get anywhere. I like to make my gifts special and unique to that person. So I commissioned Dailey, one of my favorite designers, to create something Cheryl and her husband would enjoy, inspired by the most influential book to both Cheryl and me. So the entire Sherpaa team commissioned Dailey to make this piece. We framed it and it’s just gorgeous.
