The entire piece of work took me a total of 2-3hrs/night x 7 days thereabouts. I started the process with choosing the calligraphy style I was most comfortable writing with, and working on a rough layout on how I envision the words to flow etc. There was pretty much a lot of sketching done, as well as trial and error of the layout on the board itself.
The whole experience was a backbreaking one, but entirely satisfying as I got the opportunity to improve on my hand-lettering skill. It is a great way to experience typography where every kerning and leading is led by your hand-eye coordination.
While the final work is far from perfect, I must say that I am really relieved at how it turned out. I'm looking forward to work on a second piece if opportunity comes! There will be slots available for commission works in the next month to come (August), please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
