Mile High Awesomeness

TheeBlog-SpewbagChallenge When it comes to flying, I’ve realized that I’m the type of person who simply cannot sleep in planes. If I’m not watching TV, listening to music or working, chances are I’m doodle-practicing or playing with letters. And for a while, I thought I was alone in this habit… But then, I discovered the stunning work of Australian Typographer and Letterer Gemma O’brien, and her in-flight lettering masterpieces. I’ve been a fan and follower of Gemma’s enviable talent, technique and lovely work for quite some time, and I am excited to share her recently launched mini-site called The Spewbag Challenge, featuring some of her beautifully lettered ‘airsickness bags’. This one is a must-bookmark!

Gemma O’Brien is a Sydney-based typographer, hand-letterer and illustrator. A stint learning letterpress in university sparked a fervent obsession with typography, and the creation of her blog For the Love of Type. At 21 she produced an experimental video, in which she inscribed her body with hand lettering, that caught the attention of Font Shop’s Jurgen Siebert and earned her an invitation to speak Germany’s 2009 Typo Berlin design conference.
