You are so infinitely sweet

I have been a graphic designer for 7 years but am really interesting in improving my hand drawing skills. I have always loved typography and this class looked like a great place to start!

I chose the phrase 'You Are So Infinitely Sweet' as I have a young son and this makes me think of him. Once this is finished I'm planning on hanging this piece up in his room :)

Any and all feedback would be wonderful!

Below is the list of words that popped into my head when I thought about my phrase - I really want to play up a difference between 'infinite' and 'sweet'

I then went right into my mood board. I started with looking into vintage candy bar wrappers for some looks for 'sweet'

For 'Infinitely' I'm really inspired by vintage fonts that are fluid and inspire movement. I really loved the Falcon look - maybe not italics but I love the thin white within the thick black stroke

I've started sketching out the word Sweet - not quite sure where I'm going with it yet. I think I need to do a few more styles.

I'm trying lots of different compositions. In the beginning I thought I would do a banner at the top but the more I look at the sketches I like the look and feel of encorporating an arrow with the 'To Do' like the option in the top left.

I've started to refine my thumbnails into some more solidified sketches to narrow down what look I want to go with for my final.

I like where the first sketch was going but wanted to play a little with the ornamentation and the lettering of 'Sweet'. I also looked up some marquee arrows to play with that shape a bit

I'm happy with how this is looking. I'm going to add some texture in the arrow with it's digitized as it's a little bare, but I progressed with the inking of my finalized quote!
