I was sat doing some rather mundane work earlier and decided that when I got home I'd sketch something up as I've been a bit quiet of late. I certainly felt like I needed this today. I like the short five word quotes, as they are plentiful online and they offer a great opportunity to quickly sketch up an idea without being too labour intensive.
I thought this would be a good piece to show a few in progress workings, as I normally only post more finished shots on my blog. So here's a rough first sketch, and then a second tidied up pencil drawing. I think a few kerning tweaks will follow (on the 'g' the 'an' and the 'ur') which I'll do when I redraw it in ink. For those interested, it's based on John Pistilli's 'Pistilli Roman' typeface, but I've worked a few tweaks in as I've drawn it up.
