Happiness is here, there and everywhere!

Going back to the drawing board with this one and here is my mood board.

 I love nature and there is something about playing outside, going for a walk and playing with my dog that makes me happy. I wanted to capture this in my art. It would be awesome to have the happy be decorated in wood to complete the whole nature theme. I chose a blue bird because they are beautiful. I just imagine singing birds.

Okay so I wasn't feeling too comfortable posting this just yet but I need the feeback so here goes.

First I went back to the basics with practicing letterforms and in the back of my mind going over these block letters. Happiness seems too large of a word for me to work with so I want to change the word to Joy. The mood I want to convey is a playful one. Joy can be found in the simplest of forms like music, plants, flowere and animals. I also wanted to capture the fun of being a kid.

I have some drawings of some sketches but still working on these.

Here are my letters.

practicing the fonts you shared with us in the bonus. I love ornate styles. This

lead me to really think about my piece and so far I have come up with this sketch.

the o would be a ball, and the y would be a tree trunk and the j would be an instrument.

Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Here is the final sketch and some sketching I  did.. I may make some more changes,

I am ready to begin working on part 2 of this class. I need to take time and learn how to use photoshop. 

Or so I thought....June 20, 2016

I like the idea but not sue it quite captures what I want to say. 

My direction is well-I think about the children who when you say okay lets play. They go wild and have so much fun. I started thinking about how easy it is for them to be happy. That is the emotion I want to convey here. This happiness is all around us for the taking and its free for us to share with others. 

Mood board again.  ( I am thinking of toys and what in nature is amazing? What brings a child joy?

This one is amazing. If I look at the original I' say it is exactly what I wanted but didn't have the skill to pull it off.
