some found lettering

This subject is close to my heart………sometimes I get inspiration from the strangest places and often I am drawn to informal lettering. Lettering that is just applied directly by an untrained eye can have something really fresh about it – it is often but not always unselfconscious and unrestrained by an underlying sense of design. It’s a bit hit and miss naturally but can be quite striking. Often the letterforms are crude and inconsistent, “breaking the rules” but perhaps because of that they can be a revelation. Examples of this found lettering can be seen here. This is an ongoing project…….
