digital | paper cut

Hand-lettering to papercut, a favorite method of mine! During the initial drawing stages of this piece I drew on more retro inspirations in an attempt to explore the elegance of a flourish. I have always been a fan of typographic swagger and was looking for fresh ways of incorporating it into my work. After the drawing was finished and I recreated my art in the computer, I was ready to produce the papercut. During this process I focused on the play of negative and positive space, further experimenting with the flourish. And here before you is the playful product: a little old, a touch of new, and a whole lot of fun!
