IF - Magnify


This is what came to mind when I thought about this week's Illustration Friday theme of magnify. The phrase, Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear, is a safety warning often engraved onto convex mirrors in motor vehicles. Despite its origin as a utilitarian safety warning, it has become a well known phrase that has been used for many other purposes. For me, it was just another opportunity to have a little fun with lettering in my watercolor Moleskine.
