I had the privilege of illustrating this quote for a strong and sweet lady.
Her boss/mentor shared these words of wisdom with her. I think they are beautiful.
As I read this quote I had many ideas related to height, road, and journey. And this is how it evolved:
My friend liked the bird idea, but she also wanted it to be an eagle; eagles are such powerful symbols. She asked me to put a sun somewhere in there, to me the sun is another mighty representation, so it was perfect for a background.
The lines are rather free and organic, no ruler involved. The lettering is very informal and bouncy to carry the message of imperfection. A message of how mistakes while inevitable can always teach us a lesson, and in opening our hearts to that learning is one way to take the high road.
How would you take the HIGH ROAD this coming week?
