We Have Been So Lucky

This idea for a pet grief card grew out of a lettering tribute I drew for the late, great Calamity Jane Hawkins. I had 15 great years with her, and when I was coming up out of my grief, the phrase “We have been so lucky” was really resonant for me. I was lucky to have been her friend, roommate, ally and antagonist.

These are A2-sized letterpress cards printed at a union shop in Brooklyn and available on Etsy and for wholesale on Faire.com.

This design was a finalist for the GCA Louie Awards in 2022 in the “Sympathy ($5+)” category and is currently available at Barnes and Noble bookstores nationwide.
