[Inspirational] Hand-lettered watercolour quotes

MbM_BLOGTACULAR-QUOTES-01(C)I’ve been playing about with some hand-lettered illustrations this week (a break from all the branding and portfolio work thats kept me well out of mischief!) and been exploring ways to bring them alive by overlaying them onto textured watercolour backgrounds – a bit of mixed media fun so to speak. What do you think? They’re far from perfect but it’s all part of my journey into the world of graphics and illustration but with particular focus on lettering and typography. I know there’s many ridiculously talented folk out there doing some incredible hand-lettering work and I just want to be able to do the same but obviously bring my own personal flair to them…..which is kind of what you see here. Anyway, it’s all work in progress….trying to find my niche, as Will Taylor put it! :)

These quotes are from some of the most inspiring key speakers that I had the privilege to listen to at Blogtacular early this summer, and I felt it was only right to share them with you, as we come to the end of another week (we all need a bit of morale-boosting from time to time!) If you do like the look of these, let me know if this is something you’d buy as a print as this is an area I’m hoping to evolve. I may actually start doing a ‘free printable’ series of inspirational quotes too that you can print yourself and have up on the wall. But yea, any feedback is greatly appreciated so please feel free to let me know your thoughts :)

Have a lovely weekend! xx
