A topic I'm always thinking about is that line we've all been fed: if you put enough time and effort into something, you're bound to see the results. Whether its to always better yourself, challenge skills, or keep things from becoming stale; progression is a main motivator. 

I put it into action after finding an abandoned vector piece that I did almost 7 months ago. At that time, I had just started out and so you could say I had a very basic foundation of lettering and how to vector lettering in illustrator. I reconsidering the piece, I could see all the mistakes and things that could have been improved on. I took it up as a little challenge to reinterpret the sketch with the knowledge that I had gained since then, and suit it stylistically to where I was in the present.

Top piece is the original, below it is the revisited piece several months later.
