Here is the 2nd installment of the My Type of Song project. It’s from What More Can I Say by Jay-Z (2003).
With all projects, it started with a sketch. Lucky for me I already had some clear ideas, so this process went rather quickly.
Instead of the normal process of scanning and pen-tooling in Illustrator, I went straight to the latter and hoped that I could “wing it”.
I made these blue diagonal lines as a grid to ensure that all my curves and angles were consistent. I ended up changing a few letter forms along the way that weren’t originally sketched out.
I’ve been lousy at tracking hours for personal projects lately, but I think that this was one of my faster start to finish projects. Stay tuned, as I already have installments 3 and 4 sketched out!
