Small and big

Now that the rush of before the holidays have passed, I finally have some more time to put myself at my desk and draw, without feeling guilty because some revisions are waiting for a client.
Later today I am going to print a calendar that I decided to make this weekend for my dad, with some patterns you might have seen here on the blog or on my website. I can’t wait to see it printed! It is always a great pleasure to see the stuff you make printed instead of on a screen.
But in the meantime, I wanted to show you the hand lettering I made from a quote from Carl Sagan. His words always make me feel so small, but so important at the same time. It is difficult to explain without sounding corny!
In a near future, I would like to hand letter more quotes from him and make a sort of series. I feel like his words resonate very loud today, even if he pronounced them some 20 years ago. Maybe this series would expand his work and make them remembered.
Enough words though for now, but I just wanted to explain a bit my thoughts and how i came to choose this quote and not another one. It is so easy now to get a bit lost in this visual culture without paying attention to what’s behind. There’s Instagram for that. But for my blog, I want a bit more.
