This tea towel was recently done as a gift for a friend. The letters were inspired by Yves Leterme, during his "Drawn Capitals and Modern Versals" class in Chicago in May, 2012. I drew the letters—in the composition you see here—small, as an exercise in the class. And in December, enlarged the design and then re-drew them; transferred the skeletal forms to the tea towel; then hand-painted them with a flat brush.
I love this quote! I like to think that many problems in this world could be resolved if we could just sit down and discuss them over tea. :-)
