Lettering Wednesdays

*Technically it’s Thursday since I’m posting this before going to bed and it’s after midnight, I’ll try to post earlier in the future. 

I’m not finished with this lettering piece but I thought I’d screencap the drafts I’m working on for you. It’s a nice bit of process while I figure out word hierarchy. It’s a quote I feel is quite relevant these days and an important issue.

A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.
-Edward Abbey

Will have a post on Friday with some fun illustrations. I was hoping I’d get a reply from someone before posting it, but it doesn’t seem likely so I’m just going to post it on Friday. Excited to share that with you, it’s a fun creative piece that I spent a lot of time working on.

Happy arting friends!

Patterns & Fonts | Title Sequence WIP

Today was a busy day. Got to go peach picking with my grandmother and other family, visited my Aunt & Uncle’s new home, and then had a low key dinner party. It was anticipated since we’re always doing lots of activities when we come out to the Western Slope of Colorado. It’s fun, but draining.

I did draw an icon for the styleframes, but I have yet to mock it up in Illustrator. I didn’t get much farther than that drawing wise. I allotted time to figuring out what I wanted the type to say. I also took time finding a free font that looked similar or at least mimicked the feeling that is presented in the Man Seeking Woman titles. If you couldn’t tell I spent a lot of time reading the interview on Art of the Title.

You can see a couple pattern tests and the titles that I’ve started with. Will be testing some other ideas for the names, but for now these work. I’m working for funny but relatable when it comes to writing. I’ll have to brainstorm with a few writer friends for more ideas.

The font I decided to use is called Moon. It’s similar in style to the rounded look of Diamonds, but has a difference in variation. Still reflective of the style, but more importantly, free.  You can download it here if you like it!

I have another 5 hour+ drive back home to Boulder with the fam tomorrow so we’ll see how much work I get done. Depends quite a bit on the time we get back. Yay traffic. >_>

Night friends,
