This was one of the requests I got in Instagram. Decided to revisit one of my older paintings and was greatly inspired by Tove Jansson´s illustration where Moomin dives into the ocean from the book Comet in Moominvalley.
I have actually done this quote before and it had pixie dust all around it, you can see it here. It was long enough ago that I felt like I could letter the quote again.
I’ve actually received so many requests this month of quotes that I have previously lettered, so if there’s a quote about this months theme that you have not yet seen on @letterit then please send it in :)
I don’t know how it’s possible for me to letter love quotes without getting in a bit of Shakespeare. Also I got some really cute little dishes from Daiso. I don’t know how I walked out of there without getting some brush pens. Took some serious self control.
Brush lettering with Indian ink, watercolour illustrations.
This Inktober I was thinking of doing some requests throughout the month! I really feel like drawing spooky stuff, mythological creatures/characters, animals, witches, and magical girls. So some requests within those guidelines would be really much appreciated! Hit me your ideas as notes, I just might end up drawing your ideas.
Here’s my full comic I’ve been working on! I’m so tired but I’m really happy I finished it! I hop you like it! My purpose is to express the way art reaches out to others and the way it changes the individual lives of others! I hope you like it!
