All I Really Want to Do-odle

The third installment of Iconic Painters is almost ready, but only almost. So today we take a short break from guessing games to show you a completely different side project: recreating letters by hand instead of on a computer. We showed you previously other examples of this series, which based on paper works, but today’s is entirely two-dimensional and comes from the concept of doodling, taking it to a higher level of obsessiveness.

This drawing, created mostly during lectures, is made by hand, and full of imperfections to prove this. We believe that by working with letters manually one learns more about them: their shapes, relationships within a typeface – it simply makes you better at typography. Also it’s a special kind of geeky fun for people with little to no social life.
