I’ve been a bit addicted to typography and hand rendered quotes lately, as I really enjoy producing unique typefaces, and I want to improve this side of my designing skills.
Hopefully producing and uploading illustrated quotes frequently, you can see how my typography improves, and how I can include this into my commissioned and personal work. Soon I will try what I’m learning here, into a book cover or map illustration of some sort, and see how that fares!
Like my last quotes, I went on the internet to source some inspiration for the quote, and stumbled across this one, “Practice Makes Perfect” – not sure who the originator is, but it’s always been a quote which I’ve stuck to.
With each illustrated quote I upload, I’ll vary the typefaces which I produce, just so I can learn even more about type.
I have also shown a couple of my sketchbook pages leading up to the final illustration, here you can see a snapshot of my thought process before the final version. The illustration was produced with gouache and scanned into Photoshop.
Many thanks for listening and visiting my news page today. You can follow what I’m up to on my Twitter, Facebook or Google + pages, I’ll really appreciate it if you do, and don’t be afraid to say hi to me! Many thanks again, and have a great day!
