Part 2 of Several
Yo quiero ser jaguar de tus montañas,
arrastrarte a mi propia madriguera
para abrirte las entrañas
y ver si tienes corazón siquiera!
This project was inspired (in part) by the practice of Arabic zoomorphic calligraphy, which Google brought to my attention in the midst of my search for something else. The Roman alphabet is more rigid than Arabic script, but having very little knowledge of Arabic I’ve determined to do what I can with the alphabet I know. Obviously the word order gets a bit difficult to follow in the jaguar shape, and the letters shift around a fair amount; this is my third or fourth iteration, and though it’s not perfect, I wanted to share it.
