We don't see things as they are...

I joined a class about Lettering on skillshare... Skillshare is a global community centered around creativity, collaboration and learning by doing. I'm very enthusiastic about this site and what it offers!

For my class project I chose to illustrate words by Anaïs Nin, a famous American writer (1903 – 1977). My initial plan was to vectorize my work in Adobe Illustrator, but since I'm completely new at this, I now decided to use Photoshop for this project... and vectorize a somewhat shorter quote in Illustrator soon ;-).

P.S. I can't decide on which version I should send in as my final work... What do you think?

The Dutch graphic designer & illustrator Cora Verhagen from the lovely Studio Neeltje asked me if she could write a blogpost about my lettering on her blog, which is all about typography. What a fun surprise! Thanks for the support Cora. :-)
