Letter Art: A Superabundance of Swashes


Inspired by the work of Jessica Hische. Although, there is a good chance she would be horrified by my overuse of the form.

“I love swashes, but you should always try to add them sparingly … When making decorative lettering, the decorative bits, no matter how over the top they may be, should make sense and feel like natural extensions of the letterforms.” In Progress, Jessica Hische [Chronicle 2015] p48
