Welcome to Surin

Hi Lauren,

I am Komkid from Thailand and this is my first class on Skillshare.com. I love your technique and I want to try one by myself.

I start my first project by drafting my idea on paper. I also see some idea of chalkboard on Pinterest. There are four different designs but I prefer the left-bottom one because it is handwriting-style.

After that, I prepare my chalkboard and start the project by drawing outline for letters. Then I write letters of sentence "Welcome to Surin". The below picture displays the result of my drawing. I adopt swirling style for the word "Welcome" and empasize "Surin".

When I finished drawing letters, I apply your technique about adding shadow for "Welcome" and I seek some I idea for decorating from other student to decorate "Surin". I use many colors of chalk for letter decoration. Then I need some element to fulfil existing space. Hence, I add few flourishes, leaves and one elephant as symbol of Surin city and this is my final version.

Thank you for sharing your skill and knowledge. I love how to learn about lettering and if I have time I will do some project with more detail.

Best Regards, Komkid.
