Thankful to Have that Ability to Share that Joy

This illustration was at first an exploration into the process of implementing flourish techniques using both analog and digital practices; but additionally was inspired by the color palette used for the ‘Joy’ character from Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ feature film. The phrase is of my own making (as far as I know)!

I also submitted this piece for consideration into Goodtype’s ‘The Book, Volume One.’ This was a hardcover compilation of beautiful, curated letterforms from 196 artists worldwide. Each artist showcases a work in progress sketch and the final piece. The collection encompasses a multitude of lettering styles from hand-lettering, to computer generated 3D-type, to hand painted murals, to traditional calligraphy. It is a pleasure to be a part of this collection!
