    I've had a few months away from all things graphic as I felt I was getting stale.
    Back in harness again and I thought I'd use the Celebrated Burgeon Ornaments TG font, a restoration project by a talented group of TG members.
    I used the lower case "c" for the frame, with a few embellishments of my own and Deming EP (pay whatever you think is suitable) for the lovely "K".
    Bob.

    Glad to see you back Bob. Looks good. I kinda feared no one had any interest in the drop caps any longer. I haven't had time to post any this time quite yet. You are the first, good on you.

    Thanks, Larry, feeling fresh as a daisy now. Looking forward to what you (and others come up with).
    This one features a nice free blackletter font, Deutsche Zierschrift. The "K" remains unchanged, just converted to shapes, but the frame is handmade, using a blend from
    3 ellipses, which I copied to Illustrator to use the roughen tool to get the same feel as the font. To this I added a free texture of Gary Bouton's from July's XaraXone - Wood Medium Rough, which I gave a subtle flat brightness transparency to give the whole thing a distressed look.
    Bob.

    Handrawn, here is a bunch of stuff I got on the web, they are all short little ditties but I hope they get the point across. I put it all in a zip file just to make it easier, and, it's all in one place. I don't know how much of this is true but I'm sure Gare knows. Anyhow I hope you find this stuff informative. I know I did.

    I think you did good with your drop cap.
