My new challenge is lettering. And while this is no work of art, it’s a start. It accomplishes the lettering goal while also expressing how I feel about my lettering expertise. [grin]

Let me know what you think. Guide me in my lettering adventures.

I am really happy with this design, as you can see because I’ve already uploaded it on Society6.com in both its original black and white and as in color. Which do you like better?

It’s such a simple design. Start with a squiggly, add “leaves.” That’s all. When filling in the large black areas, don’t “color” in the traditional sense. Draw consecutive straight lines across the page until it’s all covered. It sounds ridiculous but it lends for a very clean black area. Also, you can’t really see it in the progress shots but I started this one with a compass and a very light penciled in circle. It’s something new I’ve been trying. If you don’t have a compass, try tracing a large, round object.

I love to see my drawings on mugs like this! It makes them look so professional. So when a friend asked me to donate to her silent auction to benefit a charity, I knew these mugs were it. I hope she likes them!

The Original Doodle Design

I’m not even sure I ever posted this design when I created it but it’s been one of my favorites for its simplicity. Others have given it the descriptive term “Swedish Art” which for whatever reason makes me happy. I think it’s more that it’s considered to be art than that it has a Swedish flare. As I’ve mentioned before, I often flip flop between very intricate doodle designs and then super simple ones. And I’m always surprised by how quickly these simple ones just pop out of me and onto the paper. You’d think I would always keep my doodle art simple.

No. I like to complicate things. haha

Anyway, here’s the original.

The Gift Designs

So I took that design and played with it a bit. I have to give credit to my friend, Patty, for suggesting the bit of red in this design. I’m so happy with the result, especially against the black background. Check out all the gift items this design comes on. They look so pretty! Fun!
