Slow loris is actually just me, Hester. With a love for being creative, I found in handlettering all the things I love combined; my love for text (reading and writing), my love for drawing tiny little details and my love for messing around with paint and ink and all sorts of messy things.
Most of the time, handlettering is used to show lovely texts. “Home is where the heart is”, “Eat, pray, love”, you know the type. I think those quotes are great, don’t get me wrong. But I wanted to do something different. Something not-so-sweet, not-so-lovely.
My texts are mostly just lines made up by myself, or maybe things I’ve heard someone say once, when they were angry at whatever. Some are movie quotes, or quotes from shows I love to watch. But they are all not quite as nice or lovely. They have a bit of a sting, either because they are mean, bitchy or just plain weird.
Looks can be deceiving. Just like the adorable Slow Loris, who, in all it’s fluffy cuteness, is still venomous and has a painful bite.
