Fun with Rulers.

7:47 AM

This weekend I was sketching something out with a ruler and it make me think "Hey, I forgot how much I like drawing with rulers!" There's something really satisfying about drawing a line that's completely straight. So I decided I wanted to keep using the ruler, and I wanted to draw anything with straight lines. So I started drawing and this is what I ended up with. It's the word "joy," in case that's too veiled for you to spot (I just wanted a short word.) I like that it has a bit of an M.C. Escher quality to it, since I'm pretty sure all the paths couldn't really fold like that in real life.
I started messing around with different backgrounds...  
...and for some reason it kept reminding me of the "Empire Strikes Back" logo:
 So then I went full-on Star Wars for this version: 
It was a fun project. Makes me want to draw with rulers more often!
