Back in August of 2017, Mike took a Lettering workshop with Ryan Hamrick in Washington, DC. Ryan was in DC on his Curves Ahead tour, for which he packed up his family for 40 days to travel across the United States. On this tour he taught lettering workshops in 15 different cities.
The workshop was filled with presentations, Q&As, and many live demos. Ryan was extremely insightful and dropped many knowledge bombs. Feeling inspired from the night of lettering, Mike created this piece using many of the techniques picked up from Ryan Hamrick that night. Ryan is a master of curves and scripts. This piece is a tribute to his lettering style with a focus on cartouche lettering.
