Summer Words

Images, Lettering

Awareness of the outside world. EarthSky: Why hottest weather isn’t on longest day, Byrd, 2019.

Process notes. Today’s project was Gradient. Radial gradient for sun; linear gradient for hot. Inkscape. Letters drawn on grid with Bezier pen. Not exciting shapes, but a) more original than starting with a font, & b) this was about the filling rather than the form. GIMP to finish, per usual.

Because I’m going to want to remember how I did this, the linear look of the S and the N are from drawing out the gradient circle into a long, narrow ellipse. The gradient line for the O is set on the diagonal. Purple stars indicate position of gradient handles.

Stay safe. Stay sane.
