I don’t usually do sidewalk/pavement chalkwork, but today is the birthday of my favorite composer – Giuseppe Verdi…his music has been such a gift and inspiration to me.

New business cards designed for relocating to New York. A layout was first created in black ink on cotton paper. The original was sent to the engraver in London, England – Smythson of Bond Street created a hand-engraved copper plate from the original draft. The finished product is stunning; an oversized card (10cm x 6.5cm) with gold ink on 700gsm Nile blue stock, with hand-rounded corners and 23kt gold hand-gilded edges.
