Homesick

That H is going to bother me for a long time.

I put this together before heading out for a long drive to the cottage. There’s something about driving past round bales that will always remind me of home, and the country roads up north feature plenty.

This is right about when I realized that lowercase ‘e’ needs that little elbow where it crosses over itself. The bottom of the bowl needs the curvature to balance out the letterform!

I’m also quite happy with this lowercase ‘s’. So far, I’ve started rolling back like this on ‘s’ and ‘b’, resulting a nice flow.

Still struggling with ‘k’ as you can see! Practice makes perfect.
