My Brush with Greatness

What is it about white on black that makes lettering look better than it is?  Kind of like candlelight that way.

Earlier this year I was asked to make some signs for a local chamber ensemble, the Bay Brass.  They were performing at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music to celebrate the release of their CD "Sound the Bells", a labor of love eight years in the making. 

Little did I know at the time that the CD would go on to be nominated for a Grammy! Since my husband plays in the group, my first thought was--do we get to go to the awards?!?  But I think the classical small ensemble awards are probably handed out the night before, maybe in the basement, or the parking well.  Lady Gaga will have to wait to meet me.

Anyway, you can hear samples of, and/or purchase, this amazing recording here, along with their Christmas album which is awesome and has been a favorite for over ten years.  Be sure to mention you know their calligrapher...


  1. Wooo Hooo! It is Lady Gaga's lose, to be sure. Congratulations Jody. Love at Christmas. Harvest

  2. Oh, how wonderfully exciting!! Congratulations.~~~

  3. Wish I had read this when you first posted! Your lettering is terrific, and I am off to shop. Congratulations and best wishes to your husband; that's awesome!

  4. Thanks everyone! It's pretty exciting and we're keeping our fingers crossed.
