Mike, where are you based? I fear that a pub halfway between us may be in the ocean (or is that the drink?) %3B-)

Thanks people. Was a real biatch to get right, as I've only ever attempted to do my own lettering a handful of times before, so am super-slow (I usually hire in a proper calligrapher for important jobs). I did a few rounds back-and-forth between my 2B pencil and Mac. There are one or two little parts I'd like to tweak, but the client's chosen one of my other options. The practice was worth it anyway. Lots of fun, and nice to stretch myself to try convey a more delicate feel, outside of my usual 'chiseled' style.

Simon, it's great to know that you started off this masterpiece with good 'ol graphite and compressed tree pulp. Really amazing work, man. You and a handful of other Davincis around here are gonna force me to quit this whole design thing and go work at Starbucks.

Thanks Jon. Definitely don't deserve the da Vinci comparison. Just pushing pencils %26 pixels about, till they look OK. Sometimes I wish I had less responsibility - Starbucks sounds like the perfect place for me.
