Creating… Miranda

Creating… the Mistress of the Sea

A little bit of word art in progress. I don’t plan much when I sketch typographically. The shapes of the letters guide me.

This sketch started with the crown. Then the “S” offered to stand guard beside it and arch over in protection but the curving baseline never took hold.

I am especially fond of the “v”. It will lead into some nice intricate flourishes and help me balance the final composition.

“Mistress” came into play because queen was too short and princess too sweet. And the anchor is just the beginning of balancing with decoration.
