Beauty & Truth

March 12, 2014

Back working on this after a long break.

I have started vectorizing the sketch, no plans for colors yet, I am enjoying the simplicity of illustrating the shapes in black and white. Behind the Earth will be a sun. I am not planning on using the tools/icons I pasted on it. Originally I had teh descender of the "I" in Beckoning do a swirly fancy thing but it looked to much like a strange-backwards J or something.

"Beauty and truth are all about us, beckoning us to respond." - Neal A. Maxwell

This quote comes for a talk about creativity. It says to me that inspiration is everywhere and all of life is creation. It encourages us to be co-creators with the universe in whatever medium that may be.

I suppose the purpose would be for a cover to a art studio or school.

Descriptive words

Some inspirations:

Some of my sketches. I used fonts as references. Plan to do more thumbnail ideas still.

A couple more with the word "truth' I used some reference but handlettered them, I used a calligraphy pen on my blackletter.

Just another quick thumbnail concept:

Latest thumbnail, would like feedback on this. has more influence from grateful dead type poster.
