Super rad

July 18th, 2011

Sweet, Gala’s Radical Self Love Bootcamp announcement has just gone live so I can share this illustration I drew for her. First real attempt at making fancy hand written type and it turned out to be the most satisfying thing I’ve worked on for ages. Must experiment further!
