This lettering piece is part of my passion project Song Title of the Week (No.1) where I give song recommendations with custom cover art.
I chose the song Fallingwater by Maggie Rogers.
My initial thumbnail sketches
I wanted to reflect falling water and the turning point in the song. It's getting too much for her, but eventually, she overcomes it and finds new strength and new insights about herself.

The final lettering piece with color and texture
I aimed to let it fit with her album artwork, so I used the same colour red and added a lot of film grain.
