I finally finished this poster! I know that it's very soft and undeniably girly, but I really couldn't help myself. I always use gig posters as an excuse to scratch whatever visual itch I've been having, and recently it was calligraphic illustration.

Drawings such as this were my inspiration. Continuous line, pure decoration... Mine is obviously nowhere near as intricate or refined, but it was certainly fun to try! I used a grease pencil (China marker) to give the drawn line a more interesting texture.
