The phrase means nothing (personally), it just has some pretty letters in it, so I thought it would do. I started sketching with the idea of mixing text styles, some script and bolder serif font... but I ended up changing it when I started to draw it out. Please Don't Stay - image 2 - student project

My hands are always pretty shaky, so I didn't plan on having a beautiful finished sketch... that's where illustrator comes in!

After popping it into illustrator and lots of zooming in, I'm happy with it. This is the first time I've gotten flourishes to look natural and not forced.

Added some textures and color... voilà!

I think I am finished with it... just might change up some colors. Any feedback is appreciated!
