"Wakens the Ferine Strain"

"Wakens the Ferine Strain" - student project

I am hand lettering a quote from Jack London's "The Call of the Wild"

"Wakens the ferine strain"

It's meaning is kind of foggy at first but basically ferine means adventure.  The adventure and longing that we all have for adventure is awakended and we move towords it. We act upon that calling. Much like a sailor is drawn to the sea, a pilot is drawn to the sky, a painter is drawn to a brush.

Here is the initial sketch.
