the life of a print.

This is the journey of a little threeletterbirds print. It started as a doodle, when I certainly should have been paying attention to something else.

I play with the letters and try to mix in some quirky print or all-caps with calligraphy or script. And mess around with how some illustration might fit in.

I try try to make certain key words pop, or make the lyrics of a song “look the way they sound.”

I realized this called for a more minimal illustration and a few more tweaks.

The words nagged at me until well after dinner. Sometimes things just don’t look “right.” And then it hits you exactly when you plop your children in the bath tub, or something incredibly convenient like that.

Eventually it’s time to get some ink and watercolors involved and make some magic.

And here she is.
