First version of a Holiday greeting. Sketched in pencil, traced in Illustrator using the new Width tool. Palette chosen: warm winter hugs, soft lambswool socks and scarves, snowflakes, marshmallows, eggnog, shortcake, white chocolate, and mint. Y U M.
Second version - a warm glow from the center, more typical holiday colors, zing, cinnamon, spice, fireplace, snuggling, and a good zesty debate over where to put the Xmas tree this year.
Final chosen by client. Still a glow, but more of a snowy feel with the soft teal. Lots of crisp snowfall that blankets the letterforms.
