Sketch First…

June 11, 2007

Over the past week, I’ve been really wanting to get my typography sketches more unique, as well as more custom. Before hand, it was a mixture of certian base fonts that i would bastardize because I liked the structure of them. Granted, here are some real quick ones I did that i’m going to go in and vector up. All I need is a rough foundation since I can control weights in Illustrator. Now, all i have to do now is actually go and buy a nice paper stock that doesn’t soak the ink, but sad to say, i love the blottyness of it.

anyway. it’s nothing great, but might inspire a few of you while playing around with your typography.

  1. Nice! Dig it- actaully like it unvectored too! That would be sick addition to any piece- hand drawn scripts ect.

    Very nice indeed! I like the rough/bled edges duder.

  3. i love seeing this stuff from you, it really shows off your talent. i don’t think a lot of people realize the thought process that goes into work like this and the stuff you do on a daily basis; showing preliminary hand-drawn sketches really brings everything to such life.

  4. oh, and post more of these from now on!!!

    For a quick sketch i found that laser copier paper
    dosen’t really soak to much ink (at least compared to inkjet)and its cheap to have some hanging around. What do you Use?
