Corbyn Tyson is an incredible friend and mentor to me. I’ve done some of my best work under his art direction, had some of my most favorite creative moments on his watch, and called him (and his awesome and discerning wife) whenever I’ve felt like quitting (Corbyn, anticipate a call tomorrow). He has made me so, so much better at what I do. When he’s not talking me off of creative cliffs, or running his agency Frank & Harvey, or directing super cool videos, he’s spending time with his family and being a dad (note: an awesome dad). And this role has led Corbyn to his latest project (with Soul Pancake!)
We have all been affected by our dads. And really, our relationship with our fathers ripples on to so much of our lives. I’m so blessed to have an amazing relationship with my dad, and I’ve been thinking about this even more now that we have a little one we get the privilege of parenting. In the pilot episode of The Fatherhood Project, Corbyn begins a dialogue about fatherhood… what did our dads do right? What maybe not as right? And how does that affect us and the way we parent?

Hello! Needless to say, it’s crazy over here getting ready for Christmas! Eeeeeeee!!!! (Is that a word? No. It’s a sound. Go with it).
Have you ever thought you didn’t have enough money to make a difference? Mocha Club is a web-based community of people giving up the cost of a few mochas a month to fund development projects in Africa in the areas of Clean Water, Education, Economic Freedom, Orphan Care, and Healthcare. Enticing, right? (You can read more about Mocha Club & their mission here.)
Mocha Club has an online store where you can also purchase products that help raise money towards their mission. I’m thrilled to have been able to partner with them to create a few designs around their I Need Africa manifesto, available in the store now!
I would – we would – be so honored if you would check out these prints & mugs, and if they speak to you, please consider purchasing a few as gifts for friends or loved ones this holiday season. (Or for yourself!) I’m grateful to get to be a tiny part of this huge & noble effort. (Click here to check out the Lindsay Letters goodies available at the Mocha Club Store!)
Lettering the cover for Smitten Magazine’s 9th Issue | Heavy Metal Edition is one of my highest creative honors to date. I am beyond blessed and grateful. More details later, but for now I just had to show you the cover. (Eeeeekkkk!!!) xo, L
