Every room in the house is now officially organized so that has freed me up to do more of what I love. Art. Yahoo! I have been working on a hand lettering Skillshare class by Mary Kate McDevitt for awhile now. This project consists of lettering a short phrase so I chose, "Do what you love. Love what you do." Short and sweet. Here is some of my progress so far from brainstorming to layout.
I played around with different styles for the word Love.
Then some different compositions of the words themselves.
I liked this look the best and tightened up the sketch using my light box.
Then I tried to ink it but my bristol paper wasn't working. The ink was bleeding everywhere so I upgraded to some Strathmore Drawing paper and I did a little test, success! I think I'll have time to ink this again this weekend.
I love where this is going and my admiration only grows for artists who have this skill. It is not easy, but practice makes better right?
