Washington, D.C. — I have reached the 100th letter in A Letter A Day. This art project to write a letter every day not only serves as valuable calligraphy practice but also as a creative wellspring for my illustration work. I make sure that each letter I write—both in form and content—is unique and tailored specifically for the person receiving it. You can view the project thus far on my Instagram.
More importantly, this project enables me to get back in touch with long lost friends and family. I appreciate this opportunity to reconnect with people I care about. But what I appreciate more is to hear back from them with news that they are healthy and happy. Letter writing gives us the chance to have deeper connections with the people around us. It is an irreplaceable art and tradition worth keeping alive.
