R is for Ribbon, II

On My Mind, Miscellaneous Graphics

Belated letter art to go with last week’s photo.

[R is for Ribbon]

Process Notes
Drawn in Inkscape, finished in GIMP. Instead of sorting out how to cut or intersect objects in Inkscape, I patched over the problem areas with pieces of the same color. A functional solution but not an elegant one. Speaking of elegant, the roundness on the upper arm of the R never got right. After much fiddling, I had to declare victory and get on with my life. Curves are hard!

On the up side, the result is at least in the same time zone as what I was aiming for and I don’t hate it. So, progress.

Thank you for reading,
Katherine Walcott
