Hand drawn lettering

Over the summer I created some work for a solo show. I began researching the genre of typographic posters. Hand-lettered signs, posters, and product design began to intrigue me so I began to create some of my own. What culminated is a show of my very first attempts at this form of typography. Surely this won’t be my last foray with this type of work.

Semester recap

2025446_orig
Had some good work from the Illustration class this semester. Worked on a variety of techniques first half of the semester, both traditional and a combination of traditional and digital. The second half of the semester they used these techniques to create gig posters, childrens books, advertisements and editorial illustrations.
