"Comparison is the Thief of All Joy" Inspirational Calligraphy Print
(Digitally printed, onto textured, off-white papers)
Sixth in the "Conscious Healing" range. I first heard this said a few years ago by a YouTuber. It really struck a chord with me. It was actually the second lino cut print I put together after my RuPaul quote, however, I abandoned the idea...but now it is here in full metallic glory. Let's stop comparing each other and each other's work. We all offer something unique and it is beautiful. This print reminds us so. I love mindfulness quotes and uplifting messages, we need more of them in our lives, I feel.
The whole print is illustrated by hand, using a combination of calligraphy and digital painting techniques. Quite often, with typography prints, they are made with pre-existing fonts (not that there's anything wrong with that) whereas this print has had each and every stroke deliberated over and considered.
The text is created in shades of bronze, gold, browns and teals, upon a background blend of twilight greys and dusky charcoal.
Artwork is open edition and created in my York based studio and printed in York. All hand signed and dated, by me.
