There are so many quotes I love, it’s just hard to pick one. So I tried my first sketches with these two. They are:
- “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” by Da Vinci
- Kindness is the new black. This second one is mine. At least I think it is (my apologies if someone already came up with it, or something similar)
It may sound redundant but I love the first one because of its simplicity and sophistication at the same time. It seems that the simplest things are yet the hardest ones to achieve. I see it happening in my life very often.
The second one I think it is the deepest wish of my heart nowadays. I find it very curious that a few people in this course are also exploring ‘kindness’ in their projects. It makes me very happy. Unfortunately, I think for most people, kindness is an old-fashion ‘item’. I really hope it goes back to be fashionable again.
I would love to be able to come up with a more ‘modern’ look for my projects. At the same time that I love and find the curves very beautiful in a lettering project, this is not the style I would like to have. I like more minimalist, Scandinavian styles, but I guess it is a challenge to be minimalist and doesn’t look too simple or not elegant in a project like this.
I think I have to buy a decent pad with grids. So for now, the first sketches are on a blank paper. They are my first attempt ever to do something like that. So I am already happy. I never thought I could.
Let me know which one you like the most. And that will be my final one.
I’m open for comments and suggestions. Let me know what you think.
