    @Neil @Kristen @Melissa @Tobia @Jovan @Forsuregraphic @Florin @Marie Thanks everyone!

    @kirk You got it!

    @Ged Thanks man! Honestly, the whole thing looks much cleaner from far, if you could look closer you would see the wobbly lines!

    @Karli And that's what our job is about, right? :)

    Wow, connecting that 'G-T' is an impressive feat! I love it. You've definitely been mastering swashes lately.

    Thanks @Claire! Not sure about "mastering", but I've been working hard on swashes indeed! It's a great way to deal with complicated curves and white space distribution, so maybe it can be a good practice for type design as well, or at least to learn about how various shapes interact with each other?

    Haha I knew you'd object to "mastering", in any case they're not far off. I definitely agree on the practice, it's funny how working with quite elaborate, fancy curves can prove to be useful when you go back to simpler shapes. What gets me is in compositions like this one is that the swashes really look like they're meant to be there and they fall so naturally, but it's incredibly hard to pull off.
