Courage Over Comfort – Hand Lettered Print

courage-final01

Brand new hand lettered print by Toronto based art shop Design Different. This print celebrates the 3 year anniversary of the shop.

Owner and designer Ryan McArthur says: “As we run into life’s roadblocks we are always offered a choice. To sit back and continue on being comfortable, or to challenge ourselves and have the courage to change and become better. This new print was inspired by the idea that we should always choose Courage Over Comfort.”

This print was hand lettered and then digitally rendered. It’s printed on a heavy weight 240gsm archival matte paper using archival inks.

You can this print in-store at www.designdifferent.ca

 それではワクワクしながら見ていくことにしよう。 続きを読む
