Hey-ya started as just a fun doodle where I was playing with text styling, and then started filling out the page with various lines and shapes around it. In the end, I decided to create a colored illustration from it and put it on a greeting card. This piece was a nice exploration in negative and positive space around the letters and shapes, and using colors to build shapes. The greeting card is for sale in the Paper Heart Dispatch Etsy shop at www.paperheartdispatch.etsy.com.
