Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given to you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now, and perhaps without even knowing it, you will live along some distant day into the answers. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Week 5, Day 4: More Fun with Fonts

To make D happy (hi D!!) I am posting that none of what I did today had anything to do with my blog, I didn't even have time to contemplate what I was going to do.  It was a busy day: K up and off to school, home to work on yesterday's post, work on logo project, clean kitchen, work on logo project, laundry, lunch (cooked by my hubby), school for S, laundry, dinner, stop at store for a few items, get K to do her homework, back to store to get K medicine, designed tshirt for school play, build balloon car with K for school, try to figure out why my scanner won't work, got scanner to work, sent logo sketches to client, phew, I didn't feel like I did that much today, but I guess I did.

So here are a few bits of the sketching (of fonts) I did today.  I can't show you the whole images because it's a work in progress for a client:

Then I remembered a tutorial I wanted to do, and I was hooked!  This is what I did:

It's liquid filled words. 

Although I'm not quite sure exactly everything I did -- the tutorial didn't explain what I was doing.  But I do know what I need to go back and learn.

Do you use CorelDRAW? I was thinking of downloading a trial version...

Robin, I use photoshop and illustrator. The liquid filled type is in photoshop. Because I am a "professional" graphic designer, I have always used the Adobe professional versions. My son uses CorelDraw and does some fabulous manga art. My suggestion would be to download when you have enough time to use the program, also look for tutorials online. It's amazing what's out there.
