Day 49: {Featured Print} Be Brave

Grand ideas for today’s blog have been instantly thwarted by turning on Masterpiece’s The Durrells in Corfu. When that Masterpiece theme song comes on I just start smiling and can feel my whole body relax and settle down. Add in Greece and a love story and I’m a goner. Good thing there’s only one episode or all my weekend plans would be in jeopardy!

Be Brave

I was so happy to make this custom print this fall. My client said Be Brave has long been her mantra as she deals her disease. Honestly, I was really nervous going into the project because they are such small words, how could I make it special and have their meaning project big enough?

After many, many variations, I finally got this one together. It’s pretty funny but I will spend HOURS sketching out various possibilities (how many ways can you write “be” you’re thinking….I know) but when I get that feeling in my stomach of…oooooohhhhh I like that…I try to just roll with it and drop the over-achieving perfectionist act. Get it in the computer, try some colors, and get the bad boy printed out.

I was really happy with the final product, hope you like it!
