So it's a day early for Throwback Thursday, but I'd like to share one of my most favorite personal lettering projects I've ever done. One night in January 2013, I was listening to Coldplay's "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" and decided to doodle the song lyrics. After 3 weeks of working every night on a segment, I finished the project using only blank index cards and black gel pens.
For about a year now I have kept a digital folder called "Portfolio Stuff," thinking that I will eventually come to a day when I'll finally upload them all and be legit. But since the process of building a website took me longer than necessary, I find that most of the files in my folder no longer appeal to me. Uh-oh. Now that I have a home for my works it seems like I don't like them enough to post them. I guess it's normal for creatives to feel this way, or is this a wrong assumption?
I guess the only way out of this is to create more work. And I do have personal projects in mind that I would love to get started on. It's time to put my time management skills to the test. Push!
...I will have a decent site running soon. I've been putting off this project for more than a year and a half now, and it's great to finally have the time to sit down, organize my files, and upload my work to one space. Yay!
I originally planned to have my site running on Wordpress, but the technologically-challenged part of me gave up upon seeing the backend. (It was too complicated for me. #titavibes) Big props to Riell for helping me out on Wordpress and opening my mind to how a great website should look. Even though leaving my WP home prematurely makes me a bit sad, I feel more relieved that I finally found a platform that's right for me. Woohoo!
I hope you like what you see, and I'll do my best to update this thing as frequently as I can.
