That’s “Ben-gat”

Despite the overwhelming influx of positive feedback concerning my previous home renovation post, this week I decided to share a sketch of Ed Script from The Ed Benguiat Font Collection. Since the original films of the face were unavailable I started from scratch, drawing the forms following limited specimens in PLINC’s Alphabet Thesaurus Vol. 2. Multiple renditions were penciled, then scanned and digitized. Finally, Ed told me to fix the stuff that stunk before giving the thumbs up. [Note: Handymen and -women fear not—next week I’ll have new exciting details on the replacement of the upper and lower lift wire set in my master bedroom toilet tank!]
