I really like how this week’s Make Your Mark turned out, and I especially like this Teddy Roosevelt quote. When you’re a creative, it is so easy to fall into the trap of comparing your work to others. I look to lettering for inspiration and I almost always think to myself how their work is better, they know what they’re doing, they have a definitive style, they are going places. But everybody has got to start somewhere, right? “Comparison is the thief of joy;” so true. You are never going to learn and grow when you let your work be muffled by the creativity of others instead of speaking for itself.
Hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day. Have a great weekend!
Make Your Mark is a weekly series in which I post a bit of handlettered work in the form of an inspirational, go-get-’em-tiger quote. See previous entries here!
