Lettering Poster

I'm so excited to be taking this course. I've loved letters ever since reading "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" as a kid. I spent way too much time growing up trying to copy handwriting from my friends' school notes. I've been trying to do some of my own lettering (you can see some of my first attempts on my instagram sarahmakesstuff) but I knew I needed to take the next step. :)


My phrase for this project is: "make my messes matter"

This phrase is from the song Jupiter by Sleeping at Last. I have just been so enamored by all of the songs on the Atlas series, as the lyrics are so beautiful and cut so deep—but this one really resonates with me. 


Inspiration list:

My list included items like

  • spilled milk
  • paint
  • coffee stains
  • scribbles
  • messy handwriting
  • broken glass
  • dirty dishes
  • laundry
  • rhyme or reason
  • messy


My Mood Board:

I pulled a some references including scribbles and doodles, paint splatters, Basquiat, and Picasso.
