Vector typography I'd like to create

This is the type of thing I'd like to create in illustrator, I've been playing around with meshes and can't seem to be able to do it. I'can distort the shape using the envelope mesh tool (screenshot attached) but I almost need to be able to convert into separate shapes unless there's a better way of doing it? Can someone give me some pointers on how to do it? Many thanks in advance![enter image description here]2

  • Please read How to Ask. Essentially, don't write a generic title "How do I do this?", instead make it descriptive (for example "how to create this distorted mesh lines texture?"). It makes it easier for people to find and answer your question. Also show us some effort, post some of your own results so we can help you with that instead of asking for a full tutorial. – Luciano Apr 11 '19 at 12:20

  • Thank you Danielillo, I've had a very quick go at what you suggested, but I'm not sure doing it this way how I would be able to create the uniform 'ripple' in individual sections? (attached screenshot of what I've done) – Greg Apr 11 '19 at 12:36

    Thanks Danielillo, with a bit of experimentation, I've managed to do it, I've uploaded the final result above, thanks for your help! – Greg Apr 11 '19 at 15:09
