Welcome to rachelsays... The blog of Rachel Lewis, containing my thoughts and musings on illustration, design, fashion, music, cakey-bakey goodness, culture and things that I generally find cool. There's also a good chance my own illustration work will pop up on here.

All work on this blog is copyright to me unless I state that it isn't. Obviously. Don't do stealing, kids.

So come on in, have a look around, and leave a comment if you like what you see.

I think I have a typography fetish.

Because this took me about an hour and a half and I loved every minute of it. I just love letterforms. And all you can do with them. Mmmm. I know this is quite graphic-designy of me but sometimes I need a bit of that.

It's graph paper (recycled, don'tcha know) and letraset. That's all. Oh yes. OLD SCHOOL people.

I'm very aware I could have done this in half the time in Photoshop. But it's all about the process. Scratching those individual letters on, and all the mistakes that happily occur along the way. Ah.

Anyway, as you may have guessed, this is a quote. About lust. One of the deadly sins! Aha. I'm going to draw some sexy people in a bit, team it all up in Photoshop (can't resist forever) and see how it looks. The graph paper may be a problem. Or it could be awesome.

(This is totally going on my wall.)

Oh, and the quote is a lyric from The Sharpest Lives by My Chemical Romance. Of course.
