'Happiness' Calligraphy

Our most recent graphic design project was to create something inspired by happiness. I got super stuck on all the cliché things, like flowers and rainbows and motivational quotes, so my professor suggested I try lettering and calligraphy, something he thought I'd be good at— he thought all my drawings and doodles were very gestural. I think this was a success!

All of these words/phrases are things that make me happy in some way.

Names of towns near where I live in Virginia.

Some orange juice ingredients.

 Ingredients in bruschetta.

The alphabet (for practice!)

 The brand/type of glasses I wear.

 And some sound advice I once received.
