Pretty cool, the swashes too.

Just one thing: the meat isn't meaty enough. I think it needs more... what are they called, fatty veins? Like go to a good deli and ask to see the pancetta.

Hey Hrant, yes I agree. This was so much more apparent in rgb when I first created it. It went totally yellow on me in the cmyk conversion, not to mention the heavy shadows. I have never had such a hard time in color correcting an image.

I made a small change at the last minute before it went to print. I cropped the flourish on the lc l, as it almost made the J look like an F.
