I'll Find Strength In Pain.


For this project I've decided to use a lyric from a Mumford & Sons song that really resonates with me - "I'll find strength in pain." The emotion that I'm going with is determination/ courage - couldn't quite decide on one!

To me this quote represents overcoming depression and coming out on the other side stronger. Despite the pain I have been through because of my mental illness, I refuse to let it beat me and have instead found strength in it. I am determined to continue to grow and become stronger even through the bad times.

Here is my moodboard:


and here are my thumbnails:


I'm thinking of going with the flower one. I really like the concept of flowers dying but always coming back, I think it fits well with my quote/ emotion.

Here is my rough sketch:


I haven't quite decided how I'm going to do the type yet and there's a few little things I want to fix up but I'm pretty happy with how it's going. I already started inking the flower because I didn't want smudge or accidently rub it out while I was working on the type! I know the lession suggested inking over the sketch using tracing paper but I prefer to ink directly over. I'm having a lot of fun with this class so far!
