Developmental Commentary

Since dolphins reside in water, I thought it would be fun to execute this type in a liquid based medium. Making it very fluid and playful, I rendered the type by hand with a brush and India ink. This process was fun, giving me a lot of room to play with the movement and flow of the type. I scanned and tweaked the letters to make their inner movements a little cleaner and slicker. Now looking back at it, the type took on the general shape of a dolphin. This was completely unintentional, but it interests me.
