Fun with Nerds

I am currently on a sugar high. Induced by eating the leftover materials from this morning's project with my intern, Emma. Nerds!!!!!!!!!!!! (See, sugar high.)

I've been mentoring Emma, a high school student, since January. We've worked through basic drawing and design principles and methods, and started hand lettering a couple of weeks ago. And today, we lettered with food! Nerds, to be exact! 

I've been very impressed with Emma's innate creative skills and watched her latch onto several little pieces of advice and improve her work over the semester. I was blown away today by her skill in translating lettering concepts into a final piece with a very unusual medium. Here are some process shots and the final work of art. Great job, Emma!
