This morning’s lettering practice, using my favorite translation of Rilke’s poem Herbsttag (Autumn Day); I always think of this version when the weather turns to autumn.
I’ve been wearing weird socks and tights as a fashion statement since way before it was cool. (Trust me, being “that girl with the tights” does not necessarily win you points in junior high.) I also have the good fortune to share a city with Sock Dreams, a veritable empire of fancy hosiery.
This weekend I had a burst of inspiration and sketched out a bunch of designs for socks, tights, and leggings. Very fun, and I’d sure love to get some of them made! (Click to see the designs at full-size.)
