Ukulele

Hey everyone!

I cannot remember ever doing a lettering project. But this class looked so amazing I couldn't miss the opportunity to try out hand-lettering.

Why ukulele? Because it's the coolest, cutest and funnest instrument there is. You don't believe me? I dare you to try! It may only have 4 strings, if you are as talented as Jake Shimabukuro you will be amazed by the possibilites https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PB3RbO7updc

Anyway back to the project... I struggled to get started but then I couldn't stop myself. I'd still be trying out various options and directions, if the voice of reason hadn't stopped me: the more choice you have, the harder the choice. I'm not sure yet which design I will further develop. However I'm getting the feeling that I will refine 3 or 4 of them.
