For BT, it all starts on paper. More specifically, in one of his many sketchbooks he totes around town. The pages are filled with preliminary sketches, jotted down phrases and carefully drawn letterforms, and some of those ideas develop into his finished pieces. After he decides which ones will move on into a more polished form, there’s still plenty to consider. Whether they’ll be one-of-a-kind, limited edition or made-to-order; and what medium he’ll work in, from screenprint to letterpress or painting by hand. With years of practice and experimentation under his belt, he’s got a knack for figuring out what suits every piece, and the results are vintage-inspired, filled with charm and distinctly his own creation.
