Mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.



This is the first class that I've done through Skillshare and my first class post college. I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do and come up with! The quote that I chose comes from one of my favorite movies, Inception.

"[You] Mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling."

I think for the sake of simplicity, I'll keep off the 'you' part.

Aside from what the scene was depicting (a dream scene with a giant grenade launcher), it's a quote that reminds me every day that no matter how big the dream, that I shouldn't be afraid to go for it. 

Time to start the list and brainstorming process!


I'm wondering if I chose too long of a quote or rather a difficult one to handletter. Time will tell! Besides, I can always do another, right?

Here's a list I started out with and then a mood board I put together! I'm thinking of going in the direction of a poster since it lends itself to a larger space to work with. 

Part of the challenge is deciding which direction to take; relate it toward the movie more or abstractly. 

I'll have more moodboards that inspire me but something that I've noticed right off is that I have a few pieces above where the words are taking one unique shapes and relationships with other words and embellishments. Something to look into further, perhaps!

That's all from me for now. Any other ideas that would go well would be very helpful!
