Research Images : 

I found myself leaning towards more abstracty images, especially ones with bold colours.  I think I'm looking for a feeling that the words are either so believed in, or they believe enough in themselves that they're vibrant and powerful.  Not to be missed. 

I finally had time to do some practice lettering... 

In my progress in practice lettering, I reliazed that I know absolutely nothing about fonts.  I had no idea what a serif was, so I looked it up.  I learned quite a bit from this process... I also learned that I don't really know what to do with the letters themselves, and that I think I'm going to have to go with some minor illustration around the words.  I seem to prefer that to the representational letters, or the letters in a shape.  I migh have to go back and do an ornate version so that I can see that (I think that's the only one in the list that I missed?) because I enjoy the look of the script... but it needs more whim. 

The pink and blue is me messing around with some pens at work while I helped an actor memorize his lines... the white out was just sitting there on the table so I used it a little.  I actually kind of like the almost scribbled look of the top one that's in pink.... 

Then I grabbed a sheet and did a few little thumbnails.... just to get the brain working.   I kind of want to toy with having a tree in a thumbnail since I seem to be stuck in cloud and balloon mode with the ones below...
