Hello there!

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

My Special K

In typography we were each given one letter that spelled out a type term. 
I got the K in bracket. It had to be pure black (painted with gouache) and all of the letters had to be the exact same size and place on the paper. I taped off all of the straight edges and free handed the rounded curves of the serifs. As a group we had to kern the letters to create the even spacing when hung up on the wall. 

My group's letters 
I actually really enjoyed doing this. It was good to paint again, but the challenge of the perfectness pushed me. When something is stressful and intense and I finish and I am satisfied with my work it is a great accomplishment.
