“Spirited Sayings”
Turn quotes from comics legend Will Eisner into Spirit-title-page-style lettering.
Check out this PDF, which explains the challenge:

Spirited_Sayings

Here are some quotes from Will Eisner, but feel free to find your own:
“We have this history of impossible solutions to insoluble problems.”

“A key to my thinking has always been the almost fanatical belief that what I was engaged in was a literary art form.”

“It’s very important for me to maintain contact with the reader, because I’m writing to someone, and I’m desperately eager to achieve believability.”

“All professionals should teach at some time in their career because they are obliged to pass on what they have learned.”

“Memory is a very amorphous thing. It is selective and shaped by emotion.”

If you don’t use color for a purpose, why waste the ink?”

“I wasn’t aware I was making a revolution.”

“I’m in pursuit of a connection between me and the reader.”

Comics history is pretty brutal.”

When you’re different in a society, you’re funny.

“As for me, I am in pursuit of excellence. I have no time to get old.”

I don’t see myself as a developer of art or style . I think of my lines on the page as a vocabulary.

When I start the first page of a story, I want it to say to the reader; ‘believe this, it actually happened.
