Thanks all for the comments!**Actually the lowercase 'l' isn't strange at all, it's standard calligraphic practice to curl the top forward to the right. Curving round to the left would disrupt the type and then the balance of the piece. I didn't think anybody could have a hard time with legibility as far as calligraphy was concerned.

I think it's cool as is.. **but I do see what people are saying about the L as well.. I think if it were to curve the other way it'd look like it was continuing the fluidity of the A, which could be very nice.**either way awesome job and a wonderful addition to the gallery.

Thanks very much Dan! Interesting point for the 'l' - I had briefly tried it the other way, but it looked as if it was tipping backwards and the '-or' was lonely!*Really like your portfolio website by the way.
