Being Crazy Isn't Enough

Hello everyone! I've been trying to teach myself hand lettering for the last few months, but this is the first real class I've taken. I'm really excited about all of the techniques I've learned in this class, and I'd love everyone's feedback on how my design's working! 

I decided to go for a fun, cartoony feel, and so I chose the Dr. Seuss quote "Being crazy just isn't enough." I want the composition to have a fun and hectic feel to it, and so I decided to create a piece with a lot of swirls and motion. 

Here are my initial sketches of the word "crazy"! 

Next, I moved on to the thumbnails:

I decided to move forward with two of my designs:

I decided to go with the first sketch, because I think the second one is too crazy and has too much going on...

So after vectorizing and adding color and texture, this is what I currently have!! I would love feedback on how the colors, textures, and composition are working. I'm planning to try some more color schemes and upload them, and I'd love to get people's thoughts on what's working and what's not. Thanks everyone! :) 

Thanks for the feedback everybody!
