Starting with a brushpen, I explored the composition at a small scale. Next the small sketch was enlarged and used as a guide for the ink drawing. With the weights and overall balance nearly there, I went over the outline again in pencil and began planning out my bezier points. From this drawing the vector was created, and fine tuned. The final step was to dress it up, a photograph of my turntable was a good background, then a little texture to the lettering.
