What we think we become

I decided to use Buddha's quote "What we think we become".  This is my very first illustrative typography project.

I wanted to relate the quote in some way with the typography. I started looking for graphical representations of growth. I decided to use a seed that pops into a plant and grows out into a tree branch. This was my first iteration.

I wanted to create an organic look and keep the words connected with each other. 

On my second iteration I decided shrink the space between the words and also play with size to show the growth. 

I'm not very skilled with the pencil, and feel a bit more confident with the pen tool. I will adjust the size of the words when I trace it in illustrator. Perhaps add the leafs and the seeds. Still don't know if that's the best idea.
