Art Journal Peek: Impossible to see the future is

I’m interested in lettering. My collection of quotes needs to be part of my art, in some way. Recently I lettered a quote in my Art Journal. It’s a Yoda quote, who says Impossible to see the future is.

Art Journal Detail: Impossible to see the future is - a Yoda quote lettered by iHanna

I wrote this quote down after watching the new episodes of Star Wars on TV three nights in a row. I also used it in the year in review post that I ended 2014 with. Yoda is such a wise guy, well worth quoting.

I’m really interested in lettering, learning how and using my favorite quotes in new ways. I am going to try to find a “style” that fits my fast pace and mood. I did a bit of lettering last year, but wasn’t too happy about any of my trials. This quote just happened after I filled the right page with another swatch chart of White Nights watercolors.

The opposite page is a bit overwhelming perhaps, filled with watercolor swirls, ink marks and random dots all over the place. Crazy colorful and fun, or maybe just crazy crazy. But just the way I like ’em. How about you?

    I like your lettering, it’s pretty cool! I, too, love to handwrite and use all kinds of lettering on my pages. I draw fonts/letters as a child already so I have quite some experience and fonts in my repertoire now that I’m ‘old’ *ha* – I remember that I had a notebook as a child, in which I wrote/copied the fonts I liked and I drew them over and over to ‘get the hang of it’… nowadays, there’s the internet and lots of tutorials and examples so have fun playing with texts!!!

    The quote makes me smile. Your full of colour pages are just the way I like them. I remember a while back I put one of my colour doodle pages up in de Every Day Matters Facebook Group. It’s one of those pages that I fill to the brim with coloured in doodles. And one commenter said half jokingly “well, you certainly made use of the entire page”. It made me laugh. I’ll never be a minimalist and I don’t think you will be either. ;-)

  4. I like the wise Yoda quotes too . . . he stated the obvious that we often forget. I particularly like In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.

    As for you watercolours . . . luscious.
