Type Sketches

Over the last couple of years, lettering has taken over my sketchbooks. Instead of drawing things and people, I now mainly draw words and letters. Many are based off of song lyrics, like the ones below. It is also a fun break from working in letterpress because each drawn letter is imperfect and unique.

On a somewhat related note, I am really excited to go see the Sign Painters movie at tonight's AIGA event! From watching this trailer it looks like it will be really interesting for someone like me who appreciates typography in many different forms.

P.S. These are my favorite books to get inspired for hand lettering:
