My passion for all things pens and lettering stemmed from a modern calligraphy class I took for fun on my day off from being a zookeeper. That’s right; you read that correctly. I’m a Wild Animal Keeper at the Bronx Zoo located in NY. I currently care for a variety of animals including sea lions, and monkeys.
From there, I put pen to paper every day, practicing different styles and learning different tools. I learned to balance my love for wild things and lettering to create Alex Greco Lettering in late 2017. I now work on modern calligraphy and lettering projects and host live lettering events.
Some of my favorite things include animals, art supply stores, coffee, travel, and anything purple.
