It's kind of fun to do the impossible

Jan 30:

For this project (well continuing from the first class), I wanted to letter the quote from Walt Disney "It's kind of fun to do the imposisble." I'm really new to lettering so I wanted to take my time on this. For this quote, it's always made me think of the feeling that you get when you're onto something amazing; the wonder, amazement, excitement. I sketched out pages of thumbnails, anywhere from making it look like magic, above a city, in a fairytale, etc. I finally decided on space.

My Initial cleaned up sketch:

I wanted to set in space to capture the beauty and wonder. 

A inked up sketch that still needs some fixing up:

Here is what I have done so far. I'm still playing with color and the background. It took me a while to do the letters in illustrator; I have the Adobe CC and the live trace tool wasn't working with this. I felt like I would have spent more time cleaning it up than if I would have just done it myself with the pen tool. I'm not totally happy with the coloring of 'Impossible'. Of course, any comments are welcome. 

Thank you everyone. :)
