This is for VecType Week - VecType Signature Contest
!!! I'm so glad I got this done. I downloaded Illustrator CS 5 and since I have some free time, hopefully I can play around with some cool tuts and brushes.
For this piece, I wanted of course to make my signature - of my actual name for once. I wanted the piece to be something more than just a font slapped on with nothing else.... I pulled a lot of design themes from paisley lmao and of course art nouveau (mucha = <3). I almost want to say that I went overboard with the flourishes, but I do like the finished product. I did everything freehand, so no fonts were used.
All I could hear while I was making this was my Typo teacher saying "Remember, make it legible. I don't care how pretty it is, what good is it if I can't read it?!"
