I’m finally catching up with the rest of the world and watching the TV series Mad Men. I know, I know, I’m way behind. One of my favourite characters is Lane Pryce, whose cut glass British accent is the inspiration behind this birthday card design.

October seems to hold the all-time record for birthdays for me. So I thought I’d use the opportunity to practise a little contemporary calligraphy.

Have a good weekend!

  1. First of all, this is lovely! Lucky person to receive your handmade “spiffy” card. Second, we finally caught up with “Mad Men” on Netflix, and are almost done with season 6, which I recorded on the DVR. I loved the character Lane, also, and discovered that the actor, Jared Harris, is the son of the great actor Richard Harris! Jared also played General Grant in the recent movie Lincoln. And, we are off to a “Mad Men” party fundraiser in October. The 60s never die!

    • Thank you, Jane, and thank you for the background info on Jared Harris – I had no idea he was Richard Harris’ son. I haven’t looked up the bios of the Mad Men actors, except for the guy who plays Pete Campbell. I just had to see what he looks like without the ‘short back and sides’ haircut!

      • I get a kick out of seeing who plays what, and what else they’ve done. I heard that the guy who plays Pete actually shaved his hairline as the show went on so it would look like he was aging! Anyway, have fun being creative today. (Except not like Pete.) Jane W.

  2. Lovely calligraphy and design. Another “Mad Men” fan here. A couple of days ago, I watched a 2012 movie called “Leonie,” in which Christina Hendricks (Joan Harris in “Mad Men”) plays a role. She is one of my favourite “Mad Men” characters, along with Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), of course.
