Lettering: Lemon

A look at the process of creating this lettering for “Lemon.”

While researching how citrus fit into the Rococo aesthetic, I found out that Versailles had a garden of orange and lemon trees. I love thinking about color in terms of temperature; after trying some cooler yellow palettes, I knew I wanted to bring more golds into this piece. You can see the original sketch below.
