Brush Lettering Assignment




Thank you to Leslie Harrod  for the resources and calligraphy lessons.

For this assignment, I chose a witty and fun quote from the French writer Voltaire.

After writing the quote by hand, I scanned the quote and uploaded it to illustrator.

Using a combination of image trace, expand, warp and gradient mesh I was able to create the image you see above.

The light-bulb was constructed using the ellipse tool and rectangle tool. after the outline of the shape was constructed, I used the shape builder tool to combine them.

Thanks for reading.
