I am also having a blast with the ribbon style 3D typography that’s allowing the words to look fluid and free.
While Travelling to Singapore, I did a few sketches at a Starbucks on orchard street. It was midnight and raining outside.
While I was sketching people around me, I suddenly realised that on each table sat groups of friends busy with their phones. They were hanging out but not conversing or acknowledging each other. Smiling into their devices wrapped in its glow they hardly looked up at each other. Then they paid the bill and left.

I haven’t been documenting everyday moments much while exploring hand lettering or doodling funny animals or monks.
Note to self: carry sketch book around and explore interesting snippets of every day life on paper.
