Say It Ain't So

Say It Ain't So is a piece I created for the Handlettering Cite.
http://handletteringcite.wordpress.com/

The preliminary sketches were drawn with a PITT artist pen big brush, ultra fine Sharpie and pencil. The PITT big brush is an amazing brush pen for fast writing with flex.

I worked on 2 versions of the lettering at the same time as I wanted to try both a simple and complex script. While drawing the embellished version I eventually gave up following the template image and drew the flourish lines freehand. The final touch was to cite Rivers Cuomo who wrote a song with the words.
