At the beginning of last week, our hand-lettering guru received a really lovely e-mail:
I came across your work on the Creative Review blog and fell in love with your work at first sight. So much so that your c*nt piece and other hand lettering styles were the inspiration for my tattoo.
I’ve had a lot of people commenting on how great it looks, while it’s not EXACTLY the same, it’s HEAVILY inspired by your work and I’m proud to tell people so!
I just wanted to give you a heads up to the posting on my blog and say thank you for your beautiful inspirational hand work!
Going by the pictures, we can’t imagine how painful that artwork was to do!! EEP!
Well done, Sam. You’re very brave!
