I remember hearing Doyald respond to the question along the lines of why are there letterers, and he answered because everyone loves having something custom. I loved the response, and it is very true.

Hey, wow, that's really nicely done, man! Whoa, that is seriously excellent work, for sure!
Looking fantastic! Here's the video where he talks about custom lettering (3:50 mark):
"We all want something unique."
Love it! @Neil Tasker
Beautiful. I love that 'v-e', really stunning curve. Really nice choice of words too! (and I do hope you drew this with your eyes shut and your other hand..)
@Andrew Terpening thanks buddy!
@Brian Steely Thanks dude, that is def. it!
@kirk visola thanks friend!
@Tobia Crivellari thank you!!
@Nikita Prokhorov Thank you!
@Claire Coullon Thanks, actually now that I look at it, the lettering seems uneven and not good throughout the piece, but I was moving fast and trying to get it done in one sitting, but as I draw more i will improve!
Actually I thought it looked really even, particularly for a pencil sketch. Either way though, definitely fantastic practice – looking forward to seeing more of your drawings like this.
it's true. and i dig that "r"
@Neil, just a quick thought. I love this more every time I glance at it, but...what if the C shifted down a bit, which would open up the room for the bottom of the L to go straight across and turn into the crossbar on the 't' rather then loop under and back?
This is so beautiful. Absolutely perfect :)
I've just learned that he (Doyald Young) is left-handed (Ha! In your face @Claire). This excites me more than it probably should. Anyway, I'm glad that we both share a similar interest in elegant script lettering.
I'm really really liking the phrase "Everyone". That is incredible and beautifully done. One possible change I would like to see is losing part of that loop in the 'E'. I would rather see it stop where it starts to curve after passing through the 'v'. Example. Can't wait to see the vector.
@Nuruzzaman Sheikh Thank you!
@Chadwick III Thank you!
@Nikita Prokhorov that would look good, except that where the C is at right now is the end of the paper! its a very small sketch book, hard to fit stuff in!
@Anna Ropalo Thank you!
@Christopher Burton haha i contemplated stopping it, dont know what happened, just went it I guess! I do like it without better now seeing it with fresh eyes
I wish I would have thought of this L - t connection. Great sketch, plus it's a nice catch phrase to draw. Makes me want to try it too !
@Joachim Vu Thanks! you should def try it! would love to see it

Inspired by a very nice shot by @Neil Tasker . Very true sentence so I decided to pull off a quick piece as well. Made with 0.1 pigment liner, black indian ink and white acrylic paint.

True and beautiful
beautiful piece Neil, love it!
Looks like I also missed this from you too. I love the elegance and the phrase! One thing I would edit a bit is the space between the uppercase L and C, I feel like they are a bit close, other than that I think everything else fits so nicely into each other.
