Wanted to keep this fairly loose and rough, just not 100% brush-stroke rough.
The direct live trace looked super fun and had a ton of character, but no matter how much I tried, it didn't fit the bigger picture that way.
So I just did a quick, loose trace with the pen tool and refrained from a bunch of tweaking and curve obsession this time. :)

Attached a screen shot of the live traced brush strokes, just for fun.
I actually like this clean version better too. Good job, buddy!
looking great Ryan, that s is perfect there!
Very nice @Ryan and this 'o' is beautiful. The rough effect you wanted works perfectly on this.
@Simon Ålander @Florin Capota @Joachim Vu - Thanks for the kind words, guys!
@Ged Palmer - Thanks, Ged!
This is frankly awesome! There has to be a way you could do an 'alternate version' for use on some collateral, or something, to use the more brushy one? I love the loop on the 's', and everything's so well balanced.
can't stop looking at it! so much balanced eye-candy!
this definitely makes me want to try out more with brush pens and likewise. any suggestions on what pens you use?

@Marie Zieger - I really can't say enough about Pentel's Color Brush (they come in a bunch of colors, but I primarily just use a black one). The brush tip is fantastic and extremely durable.
@Ryan Hamrick already ordered a black one and some refills. thanks a lot!
