Let's Do This!

After drawing bits of calligraphy on a few bananas, I decided to take things to a new level and try lettering across multiple surfaces. First, I drew out a design that would place flourishes across the entire bunch of bananas that I had selected for this experiment.

I don't own a projector, so I  sketched my initial design on a piece of glass with the idea that I could seemingly trace my design by looking through the glass. As I held the glass in front of the bananas and kept one eye closed, I sketched out the design with a felt tip marker.

I put down some rough forms and then set the glass aside before perfecting my flourishes for the final product.
