I promised to upload these a long time ago, but life kinda got in the way. Better late than never amiright?
Anyway, onto the matter at hand. One of my projects last year was to illustrate a story using only letter forms. We could use any typeface and in any variation we chose. There had to be enough illustrations to span six pages, and we were only allowed to use one spot colour per page.
Thus, Jay the Surfing Moose was born. All the illustrations above span two pages, are all made using only the Garamond serif typeface, and were inspired by the fantastic artwork in The Surfing Animals Alphabet by Jonas Cleasson. The project was really time consuming and at times frustrating, but it was also super rewarding, and it’s one of the few that I’m really proud of. I had this printed and bound at the end of the year, and Jay now sits proudly atop the bookcase in my bedroom.
Okay– so, this is a thing. Haven’t been online in a while, took forever to figure out how to install wifi to this damn place but hey, better late than never amiright? For those who don’t know me I’m the T-Man, most call me Tony though and I guarantee that if you hang with me you’ll have a pretty damn good time.
