Old sketch I did for fun in 2008 or so. Been looking through old work for inspiration, still trying to find it… #oldsketchbook

This is the original sketch for a piece of lettering i did about a month ago. I’ve always tended to draw small, most especially in the initial stages of a new composition. In this particular instance I was short on time & this thumbnail served as the guide for the final artwork with no re-drawing between the stages. #sketch #lettering #gettingwordsy
