Going on a trip to a new city and exploring the sights is one of my favorite things to do, and what better way to commemorate a trip than to create a custom lettering piece showing all the sights and activities from the trip. This piece started out as a pencil sketch, then was inked in on paper. The inked version was then scanned into the computer and applied to a great photo from the trip. Perfect as a framed print on the wall or for a travel magazine article about the city!
