September 04, 2018 Anniversary Wishes 5 comments

“Take care of all your memories, for you cannot relive them.” I want to do something that'll become one of the greatest memories of mine, and possibly one of.

Hi everybody!

I just started this class and I am happy to say, I will start posting here my lettering project! It is probably going to be a poster.

I thought of several quotes which I liked and they were all under 10 words. I decided on "I Want to make memories all over the world" because I love travelling, and it was a quote which I had not heard before.

So I started doing my brainstorming.

I wrote words like vintage, globe, plane, travel stickers, exotic, happy etc. I first thought of doing something with vintage travel stickers, the ones that are on suitcases, but while searching for my mood board I saw these vintage postcards which I loved.

  So, I found quite a few of these vintage postcards and I would love this look for my quote. I am planning to use the fat typeface style for the word MEMORIES, with some imagery inside (maybe the map, but I am not sure if I can draw it).I also like the 50's script style for some other words of my quote. The vintage plane and map could also be incorporated. The general style would be vintage, exotic, travel... 

Yesterday and today I did my lettering warm up for the word Memories.

I am not sure if my different lettering styles have a connection with the meaning of the word, but in any way I experimented with different styles (some easy, some quite difficult). I may not keep any of them for my final piece, but at least it's my first attempt.

I will try to draw the word Memories with the fat 3D typeface of the postcards for next time. 

UPDATE - - Thursday March 19 - -

I tried the postcard style lettering for my word. It has the look that I want, and I am thinking of using it for my final piece. Also it would be fun to do something in the letters. 

 Started some sketches for the final composition and it is starting to look interesting. I am using the fat 3D letters and for the words "I WANT" I was again inspired by lettering from the vintage postcards.

and here are some other layouts using a globe and the dimensional lettering that Mary Kate showed in the class. I will try more sketches next time until I decide on one.

UPDATE - - Wednesday April 22 - -

I made some more thumbnails and sketches and I selected 2-3 which I like more (the ones contained in a globe or circle and the large symmetrical one)

I didn't like the "the" and I tried some other ways of writing it.

In the end when I looked at it, I tried to figure out what was bothering me, and it was the word WORLD. I think it didn't match the style of the rest of the fonts. So I tried some other ways of writing WORLD, but I was not happy with any of them.

I thought that maybe I used the fat 3D typeface for the wrong word, and that maybe I should use it for the word WORLD intead of MEMORIES. So I made some new thumbnails using the 3d typeface for the word WORLD, which I think works better. What do you think? (I like the right one)

UPDATE - - Friday April 24 - -

I made a larger rough sketch based on the selected thumbnail. The word WORLD looks good. I imagine it with a map illustration within the letters.

Everything looks a little off-centered and hopefully I can correct them on my final sketch. I would like to practice more on flourishes and small decorative items, for the negative spaces, because I am not really confident yet! I may remove the two decorative corners up-left and up-right. 

I have to solve my lightbox problem (I dont have one) and proceed to a final sketch!

 UPDATE - - Tuesday May 12 - -

I solved my lightbox problem (I made one DIY). So, I traced my rough sketch, changed some things and this is my final pencil sketch! I think I corrected some issues and I am ready to ink!

I finally inked it but I am not sure yet how to seperate layers for the scanning. For example I now think that the word WORLD has to have the bottom dropshadow inked seperately, the side dropshadow inked seperately and then a seperate layer for the inside of the letters where I want to have illustrations of maps.

So, I think I will redo the word WORLD seperately, and also the dropshadow for MEMORIES and the little globe.

 UPDATE - - Wednesday May 13 - -

I did all the dropshadows for WORLD seperately, I hope they will come together digitally. I think that it is important to have the experience and knowledge for digitising your work because it helps you decide how to prepare your sketch before scanning.

 

So, now I have to finish with the map illustrations inside the letters WORLD and in the small globe. 

 UPDATE - - Wednesday June 11 - -

Unfortunately I have been busy with other projects and I haven't updated lately.

So, I put a world map in the lightbox and traced it within the space of the word WORLD. I did it in two layers: one layer is the map contours and the other layer is the horizontal and vertical lines that would be nice to have on top.

I have already started the next class "The Final Steps of Hand-Lettering".

This is the final scanned image which i traced in Illustrator. The extra layers are still missing.

 

Next: I have to gather all layers together digitally and prepare the artwork for color... Stay tuned!!

Update / June 16th:

I started coloring using a vintage-style color palette. These 4 alternatives are my first results, what do you think?

Update / September 30th (3 months later!!!):

I am resuming the class after 3 months. I tried to make the changes that Mary Kate suggested in her comment:

-make the outline of the word WORLD darker blue

-simplify the artwork: remove the flourishes & globe

-move the word MAKE to where the globe was

-make it more monochromatic: make MEMORIES dark blue and blue color, keep ALL OVER THE in red...

I think it looks a little plain without texture at the moment. I will now create some textures for this artwork and see what happens!

Update / October 5th:

These are some handmade textures I created: brush pen, pencil, watercolor, copic marker...

I will scan them and integrate them in my design.

Update / October 6th:

I have incorporated different textures in my artwork. My file has a LOT of layers now!!

How does this look to you? Your feedback is welcomed!! Thanks!!!

Memories Quotes

i want to make memories with you

When did we go from living our lives to striving for memories?

My hunch is it has a lot to do with social media and seeing carefully curated highlight reels of super-cool-awesome-fun lives on Facebook. It can create a sense that your own life isn't measuring up.

Thankfully, memories are made all the time. It is a biological process. Our brains are receiving and encoding sensory input continuously without any conscious effort on our part. The effort of trying to make memories isn't really about making memories because the brain's doing that all along.

So, what's going on?

When you are focused on making memories you are projecting into the future to imagine what you think (or others will think) you'll look like in the past. That takes some mental gymanstics to be in the future and the past at the same time (I call it the futurepast). This is about creating an image of yourself.

Maybe you want your
friends
partner
kids
self

to see you as
fun
smart
wild
original
adventurous
cool
successful
loving

Trying to make memories is about controlling an experience so that it fits a script you think you'd like to be in. Where everyone is smiling and everything is shiny and perfect. Or homemade. Or vintage. Or cutting edge. Or artisanal. Or whatever the must-have/see/do trend (or anti-trend) is.

You become a performer trying to create the next highlight reel, and while you are busy choreographing the experience you are missing out on something important: what is actually happening for real. Experiencing what is right in front of you. When you are focused on the futurepast, the one place you aren't is the present.

It is in the present when everything happens that becomes the content for memories.

By trying to orchestrate the experience - caught up in what the outcome should look like - you miss out on the richness and realness of simply being a part of now.

There is an irony about trying to make memories: that we will not really know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

Writer Georges Duhamel describes it:

"We do not know the true value of our moments until they have undergone the test of memory. Like the images the photographer plunges into a golden bath, our sentiments take on color; and only then, after that recoil and that transfiguration, do we understand their real meaning and enjoy them in all their tranquil splendor."

Instead of trying to create a memory, do this: focus on experiences you truly want in your life.

Drop the script about what the futurepast should look like. Pay attention to the present. Your brain's got the memories covered, and you'll get to look back on a fulfilling, rewarding life.

"When our lives become pageants, we become actors. When we become actors, we sacrifice authenticity. Without authenticity, we can't cultivate love and connection. Without love and connection, we have nothing." -Brené Brown

Quote by Anonymous

i want to make memories with you

Your relationship should be your number one priority. Because in the end no-one ever said on their deathbed – I should have spent more time at the office…

Vered & Nisandeh Neta

May 21, 2087….

The wind makes the curtains dance. I feel it caressing my face, playing with my hair. I watch my great grandchildren play outside.

A feeling of sheer joy creeps up and I feel my cheeks move into a light smile. My eyes don’t see the big oak tree on the other side of the street anymore, the sounds of playing children move to the background…

I see myself walking along another street, hand in hand with the man I met so long ago… I feel his hand covering mine, I hear his footsteps, their rhythm slightly slower than mine.

I remember how safe I felt with him and how we both enjoyed sneaking out of the house for a quick stroll when the kids were asleep…

There were fights. Big fights. About topics where we couldn’t find a mutual ground no matter how hard we tried.

We always managed to find a way, but it was never easy.

Now, when I look back, I wonder why I ever thought it was so important to me. What stays, is the feeling of love, of being loved. Of having a partner, a soul mate.

When you will look back, somewhere at the end of your life, you will see the moment you held your child in your arms for the first time.

You’ll remember the three days you spent together with the love of your life in bed, only leaving for a toilet visit or a sip of water…. No need for food…

The day you came back from a business trip and you got the sweetest message ever… and seeing your partner waiting for you at the gate… with that corny balloon…

The time that he sang you a song, as out of tune as a crow, but you cried because you never felt so loved in your life.

That moment, that he held your hand and guided you through the crowd, and you were so, so proud…

That major business success, sure, it’s valuable. And that fancy car, if you think about it, you still feel yourself sitting in it with the open roof.

But that’s not what makes your heart jump at the end of your life.

It’s those moments in your relationships that counts. Because moments create relationships.

I saw this movie online. A professor steps into a classroom with a jar and fills it up with golf balls until it is completely full.… and then he fills the gaps with pebbles, sand and water.

If you start filling up the jar with stones and sand, there won’t be any space left for the golf balls… the important things in life, like your relationship. But this is what we tend to do in life.

We know you value your relationship.

You know your priorities. You decided to follow our challenge and invest in your relationship. Congratulations on making it a priority in your life and putting it first…

You’ve probably found out that some of the challenges might be giving you a memory for life … I know that “singing together” will for me…

Take some time to think about the last memorable moment that you had together. Are you creating enough of those moments?

We want to give you a chance to create another beautiful memory together. Come and take your partner with you to the Relationship Booster Day. It will be an investment for life.

YOU CAN REGISTER HERE

You might have something important on your schedule that day. The question is…what is your priority? 

You will remember the Relationship Booster Day, 5 years from now, and longer. If you have to choose between this day and something else important, just think of it this way: Is your appointment one of these days that you will remember with a smile at the end of your life when you look back? Create a beautiful memory together… 

Your relationship is good, but it deserves to be great. 

Claim your seat here

We would love to know… what would be the number one reason for you, or for your partner, to join us?

What would make this day a treasured day for you that would make it the best investment you’ve made in your relationship?

and we will send you a very special gift as a thank you…

Looking forward to meet you in the Relationship Booster Day

And until then…

Live fully, be awesome,
