A friend of mine commissioned me to do a small piece as a wedding gift for her friend. I've been practicing doing the gestural writing in a variety of layouts. This one is my favorite so far, but I'm still working on stuff. Thought it would be fun to show photos of the process. I'll keep you posted.
One note: I want to try making the ascender on the "d" go the off to the right, instead of curling back to the left as it does here. (Production notes!)
