I have been really enjoying exploring type this year. I thought I'd finally try taking paint brush to wood (as little gifts for family and friends), and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I stayed up way later than I should have, and I will likely do the same again until Christmas day comes :)
I would really appreciate if anyone has feedback, as this is my first time playing with 'sign writing', and I know I could use some hints.
Stay tuned for some more type shots as I pump some more of these out! Also, have a look at the @2x if you like.

That is crazy good! Keep that up!
The 'R' is a little bit awkward, but that ligature/swash on that G and S is super super nice.
@Dustin - thanks heaps bro! Means a lot, I really like your work!
@Glen - haha oh wow it's amazing how something can stand out when your attention is brought to it; I couldn't agree more about the 'r' - it probably should have been the curvy style, rather than the printed style. Thanks so much for the help man :) And yeah I was happy with that swash - it was actually an accident!
If the 'r' had the same flick as on the bottom of the 'h's leg, it'd of looked sweet as. Still love this though!

Progress is OK on the Christmas presents, got tomorrow to finish them off! Going to be a busy one, but I have never had so much fun creating type.
