I've been asked a couple of times by folks what methods/tools I use for my type stuff. So I've made a rough little video and put it up on my blog to help anyone out that wants to know more about my process.
Also, I thought I'd throw in a free download; it's my texture psd that I always use to add a bit of grit to my images. I thought it could come in handy for people wanting a bit of subtle texture. You can download that from my site:
Feel free to drop me a line to let me know how you've used the texture - or anything you've learnt from or want to ask about my process! My email is:
Look me up on Instagram or Twitter to see more type & photos and updates on free downloads or videos:

Great video! What drawing tools do you use?

@Dustin Borowski - Thaaaaanks.
@Kyle Decker - Cheers buddy - from memory at the time I just started with a mechanical lead pencil for the scripty sketches, then it was a new pen I've been trying - an Artline Calligraphy Pen (3.0) for the thinner black lines, and then a Copic Sketch (running low on ink) for the final 'PROCESS'.
@Mpumelelo Macu - Ta!
@Adam Rossi - Honestly my pleasure. Just glad it helps folks.
@Kostandinos - Thanks for watching it :) See a couple of comments above for my tools ^

Thanks for sharing!:)
truly Awesome man ! I'm having trouble to understand how do you separate the image from bgk ? do you use magic wand ? I watched the video several times and I can't figure out (: I'm really glad that you shared your process, it's really awesome and inspired me a lot !

My first attempt at hand-drawn type. I'm still not happy with it but I'll keep practicing and post more.
