Inspiration
Someday, I was at home and looked throught my window and I saw a bird looking at the mirror of a motorcycle. I din't care too much about it. But that happened almost everyday for a few days. So, one day I took my camera and took some pictures of that birdie. Was it thinking that there was a friend in front of it? Was it trying to make a friend?

Concept
I wanted to create an alphabet inspired by that situation.
So, I thought about the following keywords: bird, nest, egg, leaf, wood.
I googled it for images to get inspired.

Research
I wanted to draw an alphabet based in the structure of a ready font, so I look throught many fonts and I picked one bold sans-serif.

Sketches
To make it easier I used a paper with grid to draw the alphabet from scratch. The first draw was just a regular alphabet. The next step was to personalize each of the letters.

Get it digital
I scanned and turned to curve each letter in Illustrator and then opened in the Photoshop to do the texture.

Color Reference
I did a research for illustrations with colors that pleased me. So I took this one by the graphic designer and illustrator Natalie Ratkovski. She has very beautiful illustrations. Here her link: https://www.behance.net/conjure

Deadline
Unfortunatelly I haven't done a deadline. I started in the beggining of this year (2015). It took me months to finish the project because I had to stop many times. I enjoyed the process and I wish to repeat this experience.

Final results
I decided to do more than an alphabet based on my inspiration: lettering, poster, illustration and pattern. I hope you enjoy!
