The final touches I had to add to the illustrations were to add in the writing. I wanted to keep to a hand written typeface, so I used my drawing tablet to hand write the text straight onto the illustrations. These are just roughs at the moment, I may revisit this and do the writing a little bit differently, when can get back into into college either at the end of this week or just before hand in after easter, although this isn something I am particularly worried about.
The writing on these two trees went quite well, the writing is almost childlike which will appeal to the younger audiences at the festival.
However the writing on the third tree was a little bit more faded, so I was thinking about redoing this one, although it does fit in with the quote a little bit, with the quote on this tree being ‘without blossoms or fruit’, so the fading could work quite well, however, i do need to consider what it will print out like,and my main concern is that the writing won’t show up properly. This is something I will have to look into.
