Inspire others to inspire themselves

Hey guys! 

Sorry I'm joining in late! I think I'm all caught up now though!

So I'm new to hand lettering and my brother forwarded me the email about this July Challenge. I gotta say so far, it has been extremely helpful. I've been having a lot of fun with this. 

For my phrase I chose "Inspire others to inspire themselves". My boyfriend (of 6 years) has this quote as a cover photo on his Facebook page and its one of his favorite quotes. I'm in love with this quote, but its very plain and also pretty blurry. He just moved into a new house and still has nothing hung up on his walls yet so I wanted to make him something to make his place feel more home-y.

HERE'S MY INSPIRATION:

These are more for the lettering styles that I like rather than a particular theme/style.

WARMUP: (Sorry if the quality isn't as good. I don't have a scanner so some of this stuff is scanned and some are just iPhone photos because I have to have my boyfriend take them to work with him to scan stuff for me. Hopefully, I'll get one soon, but they're so expensive! - If anyone has recommendations on ngood ones that are on the cheaper end, let me know!)

INKING:

I'm a huge fan of minimalism and black and white so I'm super happy with how this came out so far. I actually want to keep this b&w version and then continue to work on a second version for the rest of the class to complete it in color.
