Small piece of a bigger lettering gig.
about 1 year ago
Looks pretty good @Ryan Hamrick! Is it preceded by 'Pitts'? ;)
@Nikita Prokhorov - Have you been peeking? How'd you guess? :)
Just a shot in the dark Ryan...just a shot in the dark. ;)
And here I was going to guess "Edin-"... haha looking good! The city should hire you to do some promos or something! 'r' looks a bit cramped at the moment. I like how you leave the 'g' open, keeps it from being too heavy and gives it some personality.
Damn this looks soooo good!
great lookin Ryan!
loop in the r feels a bit tight to the corner of the u, but love the feel.
You're type flow is always nice
This one is fantastic so far, I really love how you did the bottom of the 'b' stem. Great loops in the 'b' and 'r' too! I wonder if the very end of the 'g' swash could be a bit less clunky somehow, like maybe accentuate the pointy tip? (Not sure if that makes any sense). Anyway, looking forward to seeing the rest of it!

I was asked to create a custom masthead for the guys behind the new Pittsburgh Egotist site, and I've officially been given the okay to share the whole thing.
It was pretty humbling to get this gig. I've been a big fan of The Denver Egotist for a while now, and this is kind of like a big deal for me.
Excited to see what they do for the community here!

@Simon™ - Wow, thanks, Simon. Means a lot coming from you!
@Ryan Hamrick - I'm a total type novice, but thanks! Ordering some Pentel color brush pens, inspired by you. Time to start doing more by hand.
@Simon™ Dude, Simon. Is "novice" what the kids are calling "genius" these days, or is that just a Cape Town thing?
I've only been fiddling with the lettering stuff since late last year, and still very much consider myself a novice (American meaning). I've drawn an immeasurable amount of inspiration from your work, so if that's where you see yourself, that tells me a couple of things:
1) Holy shit @ where you'll be when you consider yourself a veteran, and
2) I need to work harder. :)
As far as the Color Brush, I can't recommend it enough. I have zero background in brush lettering, painting, or anything even close, and just playing around with this thing has taught me SO much. Can't wait to see what you do with it!
