"I'm under construction.."
Today's post I attribute to my coffee date this morning. Upon pastry selection, I ordered something sweet and she ordered something savory. A nice juxtaposition to our budding friendship. The depiction still a work in progress, but the idea is solid. I feel like I'm getting so much better at mapping out my letters. All of sudden it is really beginning to make sense. Now instead of spending loads of time researching, I am able to essentially incorporate an idea to paper by solely experimenting with shapes and natural intuition. Of course my rulers are in full effect. And what would I do without my protractor? Awwww, circle of life.
COOL TIP: Writing out the words that you will be hand-lettering will aide in layout, character spacing, em space, etc...It helps to begin to piece the word or words together in a balanced fashion.
SIDE NOTE: I am finding that I really lean towards a roundedness in my lettering....hhmmmm...keep going down that road or try some more sharply defined letters?...might as well try to become more well-rounded, am I right?!?! - sorry, had to do it :)
