I was thinking about how I could word it more to my liking. Firstly I wrote the words ‘Rest In Peace’ and crossed out the word ‘Rest’ and replaced it with ‘live!’
Then I came up with this motivational quote: “Don’t Wait to Rest In Peace… Live In Peace”
I have recently been loving Typography, making art from words. So this is one of my first efforts. For the black picture I used ‘Bic Mark-It’ pens on black paper. It’s hard to make a specific font with the pens due to the size of the nib. So I just used my own handwriting. So I’m sure with practice I will improve my fonts, but as a first effort I am happy with how this has turned out.
I think the sentiment is very timely given today’s political climate around the world. I also believe it’s timeless.
So go, and live in peace!

I don't really know about typography.
Thanks so much Sophie! It's really cool, I'm just reading up on it. Also 'creative lettering' – using fonts and creating artworks using words. It's really fun! Big love to you and your mum xxxx
