Good Old School Lettering Tutorial

Blambot (home of free and for sale comic digital fonts) surprisingly has a great tutorial on how to do traditional hand-lettering for comics. This is one of the best I've seen, really streams it down the essentials, while including some of the obvious (in hind-sight) things that a lot of the hand-lettering sections of general DIY comics instructions over look or under explain. Like Ames guides. I swear Ames guides are like a draftsperson's Masonic handshake. Anyway it's useful in it's concept of workflow and admonitions of planning and foresight even for those of us who are hand-lettering digitally.
