Hand lettering I drew yesterday for Mother's Day, inspired by the style of @Neil Tasker's latest sketches (and Doyald Young of course). I didn't really plan anything so the composition has quite a few gaps in it, but it was refreshing to do something that doesn't need to be vectored, scalable, etc.
Final and plain versions attached.

So great! I am in love with everything, amazing flow in eery letter, and the thick thins are smooooooth.your making me look bad!
awesome work. nothing more to say.
Haha @Neil, no chance of that. Thanks a lot, glad you like it!
Thank you too @Colin!
Incredible type as always ;)
Beautiful lettering @Claire! Doyald would definitely be proud. Wonderful contrast between the thick/thin parts and the curves.
And stop making @Neil look bad....as well as everyone else!!! ;)
Can you put a sound clip of you saying this too!
@Stuart That's really nice of you, thanks!
@Nikita I mainly just try to avoid the sight of the red (digital) sharpie.. Haha. Thanks a lot!
@Neil Aha, no way. Unless I can just link to the Google translate voice reading it out..
This is beautiful! I love that "B". I'd need some help pronouncing it, too!
Wow! The "B" to the "f" to the "M" - oh my!
So beautiful, Claire. Light and free!
So elegant, eloquent and graceful. The French language and all mothers deserve such beautiful lettering. Merci :)
@Claire I'm having a really hard time believing your comment from the other day after seeing these sketches—they're beautiful!
So beautiful...it has such a lovely flow.
Beautiful work Claire.
I'm sitting here quite shocked. I've seen your script lettering but nothing this formal. I love that 'B'! It really makes me want to hand-letter my name and use it as a logo. Most of all, the bottom loop of the 'f' that flows into the 'M', I think that is incredibly divine. This is my favorite to date and thank you for finally lettering something that isn't related to client work. ;)
@Claire Just beautiful
Wow, Claire. Stunning. Balance is astounding.
@Joseph Haha I would write out some phonetic pronunciation but it'd only come in handy once a year so.. Thanks a lot for the kind words! Hope that workshop was good by the way.
@Brian Ha, thanks for the wonderfully unique comment! Glad you like it.
@Mike That's a lovely description, thanks a lot!
@Melissa Thanks a lot, that's really kind of you! I have to admit I wasn't thinking that about the French language when having to fit those accents in.. Ha. J'espère d'ailleurs que tu as passé une bonne fête aussi !
@Sean It's most definitely true.. this just wasn't inked! (You have to love those trusty erasers, right?) Thanks very much!
@Anna Thank you! The best part? It can stay as a sketch! No "clean and polished".
@Michael Thanks a lot for the support (as always!)
@Christopher I sincerely appreciate that, thank you. To be able to surprise someone who knows your work really well is one of the nicest things. You should definitely hand letter your name for a logo some time, there's so much potential in a lowercase 'B'! I'm really glad you mentioned about the 'M' too, it was the trickiest part because nothing was coming naturally. Oh and yeah, it was definitely a nice change to put something in the "Other" folder, rather than the client work one. Thanks again!
One word: wow!
Hey @Jeff, thanks very much!
I imagine you talking like this girl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FH-FrPaTfBU&feature=related
You're welcome. This year you've really inspired me to move on to lettering and more importantly took the time to guide me along the way on certain things. I really can't thank you enough for that.
I don't think I can fit anything else in at this point but I really want to after seeing @Erik's logo and now even more after this shot. We'll see.
and this is how it's done. great work as always, claire.
