Not since Jessica Hische’s Daily Drop Cap project began in 2009 have we been so captivated with a recurring project – but Lauren Hom’s Daily Dishonesty series is taking the internet by storm, and the combination of hand lettering, digital editing and a dash of humor and wit is right up our alley.
Lauren explores the comical little white lies we tell ourselves, and sometimes others – of course I’ll get up for 6am yoga! – and portrays each in colorful hand lettering, in a process similar to our own work in monogram design. (Lauren’s process is detailed in a post on the Daily Dishonesty blog.)
Here are some of my favorites. Be sure to visit Daily Dishonesty to follow Lauren’s work and see more illustrated fibs!
