Another one in the Tahoe Wildflower Series :) Original photo by my father-in-law, edited by me in Photoshop (added some noise for texture and did some color editing). I forgot to write whom the quote is by :( It's by Forbes Watson!

I wasn't super happy with this one when I first inked it in my sketchbook, but I think the final product came out better than I initially thought it would! I haven't quite figured out why some days lettering seems to just come more easily and other days it's a reeeeal pain. Today fell closer to the latter end of the spectrum!

Yesterday I realized I've completed a full twenty weeks of lettering every day. Honestly that span of time doesn't even really mean anything anymore (like when I number the post on either the blog or Instagram, that number has sort of lost its meaning, unlike the earlier days when I would hit something like Day 50... it would be a big deal). Now I'm just in that middle stretch I suppose, where I still have a long ways to go but I've already gotten a good chunk under my belt. I wonder if this is anything like how marathon runners feel around mile 11-12 or so, minus the physical toll obviously ;)
