Very ornamental and playful. Great use of the new bricks. And quite original solutions to some FS limitations. Love the Q

Would you consider dragging the lower serif on the E a little higher or using the swish on the L as a model for it? I think it might do the E good.

10/10

Great style! You made new bricks seems very useful. And, the "s" is very beautiful :)

I echo WHAT's qoutes: "spirit of hippie!" yeah

Great decorative design. 10/10

P.S. I lived through the 60's ... and even remember some of it ;-)

Beautiful.

Ah, the capital F spacing issue. I go back and forth about it being on brick past the letter width or right on it. I'd say it would be best if you moved the green letter width line to the right one grid column. It's just a bit too tight right now.

All in all, 10/10.

@all: Thanks for the positive feedback and suggestions!

@meek: Thank you for the TP! Looking back at my other structs, I realize I had been wanting the new shark's fin brick for a long time, but didn't know it!

@laynecom: I see what you mean with the bottom stroke on E. The dilemma: Keeping the proportion as optically "extended" as possible, and not "connecting" with the crossbar. I tried using the L stroke, but it connected and made it feel narrower. I tried the bottom of C on E, L, J, but again it made them feel narrower...but I go back and forth on it. I'll post these later in case you're still interested.

@demonics: width on F fixed!

Looking back, one more nitpick:

The B seems too close to the C. Thanks!
