Here’s to new beginnings,
Living, and loving, and laughing with friends.
Here’s to days ahead,
hopeful and free,
Dreaming, and reaching, and daring to be.
This was originally going to only be lettering and text. It was strange to use pencil to sketch, I find that I have come to approach things more in a manner suited for charcoal. I free-handed the lettering and (with some inspiration) created the font that I used for the letters in ANEW.
The flourish above the poem I wrote, was the first flourish I have ever drawn. They have always been insanely intimidating and challenging to me for some reason. I’m sure a “flourish study” will be one of my projects this year.
