Thanks.

They look gorgeous! How long does it take you to put together samples of that complexity?

Thank you.

About 10-15 minutes...This one I worked on over two days though b/c I wanted to include all glyph types into a grammatical sentence that wasn't nonsense.

I gotta be honest, man, i'm not the biggest fan of your scripts, well done as they are
... but that's just beautiful. the handwritten version looks really well.

I especially like the zigzag brushmarks on the first one's three dot feature, the fourth and last on the middle column, and the second and fourth on the rightmost column.

The hand-/brushwritten version looks quite good!

DUDE. This far surpassed my imagination of what a hand-written version could be. Kudos!

Thank you. I am well aware that many of my scripts are seen as blocky rotational patchworks, but being inventive and artistically gifted can be very much mutually exclusive. The brush strokes you see in the image above were provided to me by Britton Watkins, a font/script master.

Thank you. I’m not completely pleased with the flow, but this compliment coming from you has made my day.

Well, there are ways to improve it, but I appreciate the kind words.

Thanks guys.

I'm pleased that you like it. I seriously wasn't even considering standard writing directions until you said something.
