F*cking Believe in Yourself

January 18, 2017

So when I originally signed up for this class I completely had no idea what I was doing. Now that I am a few years wiser, I've decided to change my phrase. This will be my second time working through this course.

In the last year, I've become very serious about my health. One of my biggest inspirations is an Instagrammer called bunny_is_foraging, who often hashtags her posts with #fuckingbelieveinyourself. It's become her mantra and it's become mine, too. I really believe that most of my life's problems can be handled by believing that I can make the changes I need to make to smash my goals, whether it's about my health or my hand lettering abilities.

She recently announced that she is going to be writing a book, so I would like to create a custom illustration for her that she can put in her book, as my way of thanking her for sharing her story with me and countless others. 

When it comes to the style, I'm still unsure of the direction that I would like to go in. I do want to mimick the style that Bunny shows through her personal posts. She likes a lot of black with understated feminine patterns and pops of texture coming through. She has a refined grunge look, so I'd like to match that with my lettering.
