There is strength in community; the community of hand letterers is a beautiful one, and I wanted to share a piece that reflects that.
This video game has been played quite a lot in our home since it came out, so I was inspired to letter the title. I love the old west theme and how artful their old hand lettering used to be. It’s got that vintage, western, even circus or fair vibe.
Client wanted the quote/acronym “Stay Sexy Don’t Get Murdered” from her favorite podcast to be hand lettered with a skull and lilies illustrated beneath it. I looked to flash tattoos and botanical illustrations for inspiration here and had a lot of fun.

My dear friend Marissa Aikin took our beautiful photos and I laid some handlettering over to create our fun little Christmas Card/announcement. Another Mills is on the way!

Here's my initial drawing and inking for this project. Unfortunately, they wouldn't let me handletter the EB and Aluminum Bronze logos, so I had to swap those out for the regular ones. But I just love how this came out!
Finished logo design!
Lettering design of my favorite phrase/verse. Done in chalk style.
"...so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ." ~ 1 Peter 1:7
It's so true! We all need eachother, and I just love getting together with other creative minds.

Filligree is always fun.
Drawn in my Moleskine while at my church's annual Women's Retreat. It's such a special time, so it deserved a special handlettered piece.
In honor of my recent birthday and turning a quarter century.
I made this piece in preparation for our amazing cruise to Alaska. If you ever have the chance, you definitely should go.

Stippling or pointillism has a way of creating beautiful shadows and contrast. I also loves flourish.
