A lettering project prompted by the weekly #homwork by @homsweethom (on Instagram). I hand-lettered a grocery list of things that my family and I can't be without. I am very happy with how it turned out. I started with several thumbnails, then a detailed sketch, then I went over the sketch with a pen (using a light table), then I scanned it. Once I had the scanned version, I image-traced it in Adobe Illustrator and added color. Finally, I added a little texture in Adobe Photoshop.
I illustrated some wheat and banana leaves and incorporated them into my flourishes to make a connection between the words and the visuals.
