A little insight into the design of my M, When I first started sketching for this fight I knew I wanted to try and get a thinner / scripty M and a thicker / bold M in the same letter. Once I got that part down, adding the depth and dimension to it really gave the letter a cool perspective and that little extra something it needed.

Also creating this letter from scratch using just circles and some simple geometry was a really fun exercise and brought back some cool memories of my days working in cad. I hope you enjoy my Letter M and don’t forget to vote! Also keep an eye out for a limited edition print of this guy as well. It also makes a PRETTY AWESOME #3 as well!
