Found and Created Type

Here's my second post about found and created typography. I went ahead and researched more about type and here's a few ideas.

Finger Type

Architectural Letters

Coffee art


Now, provided the coffee art isn't actually of type, I believe it could very be well have type on it, and I'm sure it wouldn't be so hard to make the type from an actual font, say, Blackadder.

Use of objects

So then I thought after looking at the above, I thought I should give making typography another shot.
I'd been thinking and developing the ideas over and over and I think I finally got it right, and I've found the tools of my trade for this project.


Here's the first version:

But then I thought, perhaps it needed an angle, since it was just plain looking, and I knew the background needed work. So I came up with the developed version of this, and might I say it's very successful.

This is my final piece.

found typography and a video

So this entry is to do with what's said in the title. This is a small side project, and well.. I've made a start. So far this is what I have...
I haven't done any research of it yet, but what research does it need, really, when it's obvious. "Found type..." Found. 
So, anyhoo, this is a test, a start off on this project.

So, technically, found typography could be like this:

Am I right?! Yes!
... I think.

Soo.... some research, here goes. I'll just link up a few artists. For example, Dwane posted this ex students art... and I must say, it's quite impressive!
I wonder if he actually got in a plane and took these photos... 

Here is another artist who has used found type. 


So! I mentioned a video, you say?
Yes, yes I did.

Here it is! :D

...After this. I have started this little piece for my own sake, I wanted to draw something for myself, that's not related to university work, and here it is. Please like, subscribe and comment :D

My photography: carlisle

These photos were all taken by moi, of Carlisle.
There's so much history packed here.I'd write it down for you,
but then that takes out the joy of research for yourself.

Off With their heads!

So today I handed in my  "Heads" project - I'm glad it's finally over! Hah! So, here we go!
The heads...
Out of typography. Enjoy!

We had to make a 5 sets of heads.
The first set is of cats, I even made a portrait of my cat! This was made using print and lino techniques.
The second one down is a set of Family and Friends! That's hand rendered in felt tip pens.
Then ...collage....of birds.
Then we have actors/actresses! It had to be a "mixed set" so there's hand rendered, PC made and one collage piece.
And then last but least, we have a set of cute hammies :B These were made on the PC!

ISUU: A New Book Available!

Hi, all!

Please have a look through my online publication of quick simple sketches from throughout my days!
It's nice to take a sketch book out and sketch sometimes, and so I decided I would share it with the world.
