Lately I’ve been unmotivated when it comes to drawing floating pieces with bottoms. Maybe I’m just sick of painting those kind of walls? When drawing letters, my interest has been all on panel style with no bottoms, and when drawing otherwise it seems like a chore.

In the sketches below I drew a panel style sitting on a line, then went back and added in the bottoms. To me this is really exciting because I am able to quickly lay out the whole structure then go back to tie it all in.

To many this may not seem like too big of a deal, but to me this switch in process keeps me interested in farting out the same name over and over again. Graffiti nerds know what I’m talking about.

The painted version stared in the same way, sitting on a line then built.

  1. this is a great way of doin things,i’ve done it before. i always seem to come up with a better flow on panel pieces but have often felt my floating pieces end up with a flat lame bottom. doing it this way, i find it easier to get a really good flow and then really improve the composition and dynamic on the bottom afterwards. that piece is really nice, great flow and balance.
