Joe Very nice work!!!!!!!!

I never mention your use of type. Intelligent, tasteful, great design elements that also inform. Love these, esp. Mencken. Hard to separate them from who he is. "Love is like war: easy to begin but very hard to stop."

Nice work, Joe. Always Love seeing that hunk of black that anchors your sensitive linework.
Joe Ciardiello November 2, 2014
Thanks guys.

Two solid portraits. Really like the Mencken. He'd have a field day on this election night. Oh, as for the type- both you and Brod should copyright your lettering sand market them.

Andy Friedman December 6, 2014
Cool, man. I agree with Richard.
