I've always loved the old hand lettered pieces you see from the late 1800's and early 1900's so to do something for the dribbble debut and learn a bit more about lettering, I deconstructed the type on an old insurance cover and used that to create the letters in the same style to help learn more about the thought process and construction of the letterforms and ornamentation.

Srsly awesome work!
Welcome to Dribbble. I like to think how awesome it would be to actually be one of the Sanford artists responsible for making the map covers... talk about a dream job! haha
@Joseph Alessio I agree completely, the skill required to do those Sanford covers is impressive, especially if it required them to draw reversed on a lithographic stone! It amazes me at how different each of the pieces are too. Just a huge range of styles and ideas.
Awesome work!! Love it! Love it! Love it! Welcome to Dribbble :)
