Comp of sketches for a @5boronyc graphic. Pretty straightforward interpretation of an old school graphic; took a long time to get right though. For the homie @gustavodao #sketch #lettering #5boro

My grandfather collected matchboxes & I’ve always loved the simple, 1-2 color artwork. This is my first try at my own version; all hand-drawn & cs rendered. #lettering #handlettering #matchbox
