My name & Spanish pangram

My name & Spanish pangram - student project

Hi, Doris! Hi, creative pals & Happy New Year!

I began this 2018 picking up my pen and now I'm sharing my first project for this class and my response to the challenge that Doris sent us, a pangram. I have to say that I loved it. 

I wanted to create a pangram with a Mexican taste, so I began with the original Nahuatl name for the Poinsettia: Cuetlaxóchitl. In México, some people use a name in original languages. My own name, Eréndira, in purépechan language means "woman that smiles". Here´s the picture of my first project:

And here is my pangram, made in Spanish with a couple of indigenous names. The English translation would be "Cuetlaxóchitl, Mexican girl, embroiders fine geraniums, violets, hyacinths and a Quetzal bird to Wendy Ku". As I was so excited about this challenge, I decided to illustrate it with a frame of the flowers and the bird mentioned trying to mimic, with short strokes, the stitched appearance of an embroidered work.

It's fair to say thanks to Claire Picard, because after her class "Exploring Color. Create a Colour Inspiration Sketchbook", I feel confident enough to use colors in my work.

Thanks to everyone and Happy Creative New Year!
