This quote has been in the back of my mind for a long time, but I didn't really know how to express it. I saw one design that I really liked that had the text in the middle of a circle with lines coming out almost like sunrays from the center. I loved the way that looked, so I mimicked that technique in my design.
I started with a simple sketch of the design I was going for and slowly tweaked each element. I made a light circle around the entire design and marked the center of the circle to be my guide for how the words fit and the lines shooting out from the center.
After I tweaked with pencil until I liked it, I started outlining with pen.
I used black Micron pens in various sizes.
After the outlining process...on to the scanner and into Photoshop and Illustrator.
This quote brought to mind a discussion I had with a good friend about life and careers and music. It was so fitting the discussion we were having. How music is always there...even in the toughest times of life and how music was drawing this person back, even from other goals they first had for their life. The "everyday" does seem to create some cobwebs on our soul here and there. Hey, life is tough. But music is a constant solution for a dusty soul.
Find some music that inspires you and fall in love with it.
