Hand Drawn Typography 4 | The Rose and the Thorn

typographychallenge4_saadiI haven’t done one of these for a while, as I have been a little preoccupied. I have these spells now and again, of feeling lost, depressed, and unsure on what to do with my self. This evening it’s mostly the feeling of sadness and other things. I came across this quote from Saadi, which I thought was rather poetic. It makes sense to me and I hope it makes sense to anyone who sees this.

New Summer Challenge!!!! | Hand Drawn Typography 1

My new challenge for the summer, is to practice my hand at beautiful handwritten typography. I’ve seen lots of examples on the internet and in some of my reference books. It’s something I have wanted to try, now I know more about how type works.

I found this quote by Shawn Lukas online. I thought for my first attempt at hand crafted typography, it would be quite fitting. It was difficult and there is a small mistake BUT I am pleased with it as I know I will get better with practice.
It became even more beautiful in photoshop.
