So Create by Why The Lucky Stiff

(This is a post as a part of the 2-week calligarphy challenge)

1. My chosen quotation

"When you don't create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. Your tastes only narrow and exclude people. So create."

― Why The Lucky Stiff

This is a quote I find that is most inspirational and motivational for me for the past few years. It was a quote from Why The Lucky Stiff (or _why), a programmer/writer. Sometimes we are just afraid of shipping out things we've created since we are afraird of that there might be people out there thinking our work are "crappy" or "unprofessional". The courage to create and to put yourself out in the world and not to be afriad of taking risks is what I find most valuable of this quote. 

P.S.: I also kind of like how this quote is "meta" to this project.

2. Sketches

I was debating between only writing the "So create" part or the whole quote. So I started by sketching the shorter version but didn't quite like what I got. In the end, I decided to have the sentences written in a justified block on top and have "so create" below that in a more decorated style. I'm still wokring on it to refine the structure.



3. Proces (Loops, loops, and some more loops..)
