I'm a designer and have always had a love for typography. Lately i've been drawing inspiration from handlettering work. I've work some simple lettering into my workflow in the past but never really set out to create a whole piece in a hand lettering form. I'm eager to learn and looking forward to this class.
As far as the quote: "Un Dia A La Vez" is a title of spanish song I grew up listening to, translation "One Day At A Time." The song has a nostalgic feel to it. It reminds me of my childhood trips to Mexico visiting family. A couple of months back my grandpa, who we would visit in Mexico, past away and now this song has taken on a new meaning. It reminds me of the legacy he left behind and that One day at a time is all we get.
