I have a collection of quotes that I keep on hand for experimental projects and this one by Emily Dickinson is one of my favs. I wanted to push the style I had done with Let's Go Exploring and see how legible I could keep things with a background full of flowers and leaves (about halfway through, I was convinced I had ruined it). But in the end , it turned out exactly what I had in mind, which makes experimenting really fun. Here are a few shots that show my process.
