Very nice, John. The jumbled type is a dynamic, lively break for the regimented newspaper page.
Pete's casual way in crunch-time neutralizes the butterflies, and makes a potentially harried job a joy, as shown here.
Also, your American Spectator cover is aces. I thought it might be a turn of the century artist at first, (hopefully that's a compliment) but it's snappiness quickly said Dykes.

Thanks all -
Tim - You are right about Pete! Always a pleasure... Glad you like the Spectator cover... I'll post here soon. And that is interesting about 'turn of the century artist' - That technique is real new for me - but somehow the brush and ink/line work does have an 'older' look -which I like (for now!)

Hand lettering is the best. Nice piece, John.
