"Once" pencil sketch
I have had an idea in my mind for quite some time. Today was the first step in making this happen.
My Kerrlligraphy business, so far, entails doing custom lettering as well as teaching. But I have been thinking of an offshoot of all this. I want to start offering the writing of personalized fairytales with calligraphic lettering and art. Have you had a dream come true? Maybe the birth of your first child? Maybe your fairytale is the story of how the two of you met for the first time? I want to tell your tale!
This is the pencil sketch I worked on this afternoon to use in the blog I will start. Will it be my header? Will it be on my business card? I'm not real sure how it will be used, but I just knew I had to do it.
(And, truth be told, I am "killing two birds with one stone." Well, it just sort of happened that way. I am entering a piece in the Carolina Lettering Arts Society art show here in Raleigh in April with the theme "The Fanciful Letter." Thought I had quite a few fancifuls in this little piece. So now I can use it both in the show and in my business!)
Now, the next step is to make this pencil sketch into a colorful watercolor piece!
Cross your fingers!
