3D Lettering - Pattern on extruded areas

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone knows how you'd go about creating a similar effect to the one in the attached image.

Namely the 'brick' style pattern which follows the curve of extruded lettering.

Any advice or pointers would be much appreciated!

Apologies if the description isn't clear enough.

I could probably replicate similar in a 3D program but I'd go with hand drawn too. It would also have been useful to have seen the whole image :)
Thanks for the replies everyone.

I first thought that the style might be replicated using patterns and mesh's, but couldn't figure out how.

Hand drawn certainly makes sense and makes me appreciate the skill of Luke Lucas even more!

Pretty awesome work.

The "brick" effect may have been made using a 'blend' in Illustrator.
I'd ask the guy if you're curious.
I'm kind of curious now. o_O

No way that's hand-drawn, not in this day and age. If it was, why? It would take ages. I'm guessing
a small part was maybe hand-drawn, but then taken into Photoshop and/or Illustrator and worked on.
