Time-lapse: Twenty-Seven

I made a time-lapse process video for my recent work: "Twenty-Seven & Still OK". You can check out the whole project on my site as well as download my adobe illustrator file there: matt-naylor.com

In the video you'll see my technique for creating script lettering. I'm not sure if it's the most efficient way to do it but I start by tracing a simple sketch with a thick one-weight line then expand it, eliminate any extra points on the curves that don't need to be there, then I'll start pulling and pushing each side of the expanded stroke to get the desired tapering.
