It’s National Typewriter Day!



I remember typing cover letters on my sister’s blue typewriter. The ad for the job I ended up getting, was one of those tiny classified ads in the NY Times. It was less than 1/2″ high. But I was so excited to start working at an advertising agency!

A special shout out to my friend Charlie O’Shields who famously has doodlewashed many national days! And he got July to be officially named World Watercolor Month! More info on Facebook: Doodlewash and World Watercolor Month
