For my club comic anthology project COMBO #1 (a cornucopia of delightful minicomics), I made a small booklet of custom lettering. Though socially inept and often downright brassy, I remain very interested in fairness and civility, so chose to illustrate 6 of what are referred to as George Washington's Maxims. I'm pretty sure he didn't write them, but they are all very relevant and applicable to life today, if you can get over the stuffy language.
When I have money I'm going to get "Choosing Civility" by Pier M. Forni and illustrate that, like they did with The Elements of Style. It's important. I am such an asshole I have to have a book. Jeeze.
