I make things because sometimes you'll want to let someone know you're on their side.
What you give shouldn't be fleeting and forgettable. It should have weight, it should be memorable, comfortable to hold, and should nicely take up some small space on their desk or shelf, in their world. It should quietly remind them of how much you think about them.
I believe written communication matters. It properly celebrates, encourages, amplifies your touch in everything from a note of encouragement to special occasions. Life becomes more interesting with a handwritten card and a nice and careful choice of words when somewhere else someone will smile quietly to themselves.
I'm Cedric Victor, founder and creative director of SPECIALORBITS. I've spent the better part of two decades working in advertising, human rights work, music, fine art and graphic design. I make pictures with a mix of etching techniques, painting, drawing, hand lettering, typography, digital studio techniques, tattoo imagery, decorative motifs, found art, and other things that also "might just work." The pictures live on cards and art prints, in miniature books and other objects with love and care in a quiet studio in the East Village, New York City.
