Is anyone else super into the enneagram? I recently discovered the @sleepingatlast album with songs he wrote specifically for each of the 9 enneagram types. As a type 9, that song tore. me. up. with so many emotional and powerful truths about my personality.

For instance I go to draw something, I have a rough idea of what I want to do and after just a couple of minutes I feel stuck. And this keeps happening over and over, when maybe 1 out of 20-ish ideas turns out to be somewhat decent.
So this is where this piece come's into play!

Often this is a technical exercise where I just focus on the aesthetics and the style of the lettering, with no other purpose other than starting to get the ball rolling again, creatively speaking.
That being said, without any further rambling, here's three styles I played with today, feel free to let me know which you prefer! ✨ ...
