The Earth has its music for those who will listen

Thu, Jun 19th 2014 ----------------------------------------------------

Hello! My name is Mariel and here comes my project! (I'm sorry in advanced about my rough english, its an adquired language for me).


The phrase I have chosen is from a writer called Jorge Santoyana, aparently a spanish guy that grew up in the states. I had some trouble finding an appropiate quote, and I went trough a lot before making a decision. I decided to choose one written in english so it would be easy for people to correct me.

"The earth has its music for those who will listen

Its bright vibrations forever abound;

With the wonders that God bequeathed us,

There is nothing that thrills like the magic of sound."

Of couse I only selected the first part.

Inspiration and Brainstorming


Mood board

The idea is to make graphic the "music" of nature. I Got a nice pallette too when finding pretty images.
So I started sketching the words and practice a little bit:

Lettering warm up

(sorry some got a little cropped, pages were bigger than my scanner)

Thank you!

Well, updating... I've been sketching, so here I post

First the thubnails... A little messy but you get the idea...!

Then the sketches:


(In this first one I haven't solved the in between words.. I guess I should just keep trying...)



And finally I tryed some borders, but I'm not sure about using them:

I've been looking at new referents, and I like this celtic-like look, I thought it might go well with the composition, but again... I'm not sure.

Thank you for viewing my post, and I'll appreciate all your feedback!!

I wanted to make my sketches a final thing, so I vectorized and coluor them. Here are some colored final stages of my lettering:
