Created digitally with Procreate. Photography by @muddypadsphotography (Instagram). All colors for lettering were taken from the body of the bird itself. This was part of a series of lettering on bird photography for STEAMotype (@steamotype).
The quote is from Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Hope is the thing with feathers”:
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –That perches in the soul –And sings the tune without the words –And never stops – at all –And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –And sore must be the storm –That could abash the little BirdThat kept so many warm –I’ve heard it in the chillest land –And on the strangest Sea –Yet – never – in Extremity,It asked a crumb – of me.
