Inspirational quotes

I really wanted to start hand lettering and even though I don't have the calligraphy tools I ordered yet, I decided to give hand lettering with a fine point marker a try. I'm happy with the results and it's been a great starting out point for my new skill/passion that I'm developing. I've been reading your book "Modern Calligraphy" and it's really helped me to develop my penmanship. 

I was inspired by a quote by Martin Luther King Jr so I got to work and this is what I came up with...

I'm excited to try more, especially when I get my calligraphy tools.

Thank you!

Thanks for your feedback. I took your advice and made the tweaks to the design. And I think it looks a lot better with some air. I hope to have more time this week to try another project, perhaps with an actual calligraphy pen this time  :-)

I decided to do another project. This time I wanted to mix different type with the caligraphy and add a background in photoshop. I'm still drawing the type with a regular pen and not a calligraphy pen. I hope to start that soon. I've been going through a stressful period and I find inspirational quotes very helpful and especially when I draw them myself. It helps me feel both inspired and empowered at the same time.

Thank you for your help guiding me :-)
