"The Greatest Pleasure ..."

Here is my work, in reverse - scroll down to see the process.

The "finished" piece. Still some work on this to even out the overall weight, and getting those curves to flow correctly. But I like the word "Greatest" so far.

Would love some feedback.

Here is the pencil that came from the pen on paper, I got out my T square and adjustable triangle for this!

This is the scanned pen on paper, with illustraor. I did a live trace, a little too rough.

My Quote:

"The Greatest Peasure in Life is doing what People Say You Cannot Do".

I found this on Pinterest, I am not sure of it's origin, but it holds a special meaning for me.

After much consideration to the layout, I got this. pardon the yellow tissue, they were out of the nice clean looking white tissue at the art store....

I was playing around with a bruched pen, 

Then I did the pencil:

I'll probably set type for the banner type, at least as a guide. I can se where I need to go back into it and adjust the weights of the downstrokes. I had a hard time deciding if I wanted  clean lined image or more of a rough brushstroke. Still not sure...
