Experimenting in Illustrator

Experimenting in Illustrator with the sketch of Bella. Still working on it. Maybe will do a stamp or linocut also with the MasterCarve carving block. I like Bella's name in Petras font (hard to see unless you click on the image) I got from Veer. Speaking of type and fonts, last night there was a great documentary on Helvetica (PBS/WSKG here) and how ubiquitous it is. There were also great comments from Massimo Vignelli and David Carson (typeface designers). I pictured many people watching it and just scratching their heads wondering why? The answer is that
Helvetica is like air....
