This is my hand-lettered tribute to the poet Robert Frost. The words are a portion of his poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. Here is the last stanza:
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Turned out really great!
Robert Frost is marvelous and I really like this playful typography with this poem. I think it's a nice contrast.
Truly beautiful work, Jeff! I love this poem - can still recite it from high school (long time ago)!
Beautiful work @Jeff! Background works great too.
The swashes are spot on! Brilliant work!
@Chris Vara Thanks, I appreciate that!
@Vincent S Hasselgård Thanks! I'm a fan of unusual juxtapositions between subject matter and visuals.
@Brian Steely Thanks, man! I wonder if they still teach poetry in schools ...
@Nikita Prokhorov Thanks, buddy! I had to do a little photoshop magic to keep the background from interfering too much with the lettering.
@Eric Livingston Thanks, Eric! I had loads of fun doing this piece.
I love this! The only thing I'd change is, the deep greenish-blackish background looks a bit horror-esque haha maybe make it more browned or even gray (snowy?). Could be just the way it's showing up on my monitor. Really nice stuff, Frost was a great poet.
Very cool type!
@Joseph Alessio Thanks, Joseph! The background represents the way I interpret the poem, and the lettering is meant to be the antithesis of that.
@Julie Pinzur Thank you!
I really like this!
@Justin Juno Thanks, Justin :)
Man, @Jeff, this is really great! Everything is right on! Wish I'd thought of it! Seriously, it looks amazing :)
@Andrew Terpening Thanks, Andrew :)
@Joel Reid Thanks!
@Fil Dunsky Thank you!
I just thought about the Death Proof movie.
@Guillaume Gaubert I saw that movie a long time ago, but I don't remember much about it.
@Sam Stratton Thanks, Sam!
