I was so excited to be invited to conduct another workshop for the Art Directors Club of Metropolitan Washington (http://www.adcmw.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=62), that I decided to create a piece of lettering to help advertise the event.
Drawn with an official Type & Lettering pencil, of course (http://store.typeandlettering.com), on good ol' onionskin.

Stunning! Toronto needs a Ken Barber workshop, any chance of you guys ever stopping by here?
Barber strikes it out of the park! It's gone!
very nice! it's you 100%
Looking great, lovin that subtle dot on the 'i'
Lovely lettering! Congratulations!
Having been to the previous workshop of Ken's in DC, I can say it was well worth it. Would do it again if I could!
Holly cow! Great!
That "g/workshop" is B-eautiful! I love this.
I love that "i" too.
only thing that feels a bit off to me is the 'workshop' - something about the position and size of it feels odd. The size of it is the same while the space around it increases much more towards the right. Not sure what solution there is but wanted to point that out.
Wow. Phenomenal work!
I really dig the "Workshop" part. Nice work!
This is awesome!
Brilliant. I look forward to learning a lot by following your work. I'd love to know what you think of mine. "mr_cncpts" on instagram
This is gorgeous!
Thanks for all the enthusiastic feedback.
@Kyle Gallant: I've never been to Toronto, but would love a chance to visit. Ask your local ad or design club to sponsor a workshop. If they're buying, I'm flying. ;)
@Dallas Barnes: Thanks for the endorsement. I'm really looking forward to returning to DC. Anyway, looks like you've been getting your hands dirty doing some script lettering of your own. Keep up the good work!
@Manik Rathee: Interesting observation, and something definitely worth taking under advisement. My reasoning was to position the 'workshop' lettering asymmetrically in response to the negative space created by the filagree in the upper lefthand corner. A possible compromise would be to shorten or simplify the underlining stroke of the 'L' in order to slide the banner-like tail of the 'g' further to the left. Thanks again for the input!
@Mark Ramdarass: Thanks, Mark. I'll have a look.
