daily365: Zoo [Part 2]

008 in my daily365 project is the second part of my zoo art. My oldest boy is turning 3 in less than a month, and his party will have a zoo theme. I posted the animals as my daily365 yesterday.

Today I built the text in AI (Adobe Illustrator). The font is Grilled Cheese and it’s sort of my “go-to” font when it comes to kids. Chunky and soft, but still highly readable. Used a great pen brush called Inky Pen for the outlines. All the rest was done in Photoshop with layer styles. I used the brush tool to make the light shadows the animals are casting on the letters.
