Inspirational Lettering Quote

Individual Comission    |    Custom Hand Lettering

The Challenge:

I have a friend named James who makes the most incredible baked goods, so when the opportunity to do a lettering poster for him in exchange for some of the best cinnamon chai cookies you can get in Halifax, I jumped on it. When he gave me the quote I was to letter, I was a little daunted by the length of the quote. I had been doing lettering for 4-8 word quotes for ages but never something this long.

The Solution:

I started this project by doing thumbnails on printer paper. Normally I would do smaller sketches, but I used a whole sheet of paper for the sketch process to make sure that all the lettering would be legible. Once I had perfected the initial sketch over 4 renditions, I snapped a picture and illustrated it on my iPad in the ProCreate app.
