  5. These are beautiful!

  6. I love typography at the best of times but this is ingenious! Not only have the letter forms been painted, but they have been styled with patterns and layered with additional materials. This is something that no amount of Photoshop-ing could replicate without looking fake.

    One thing I’ve always wanted to know is how do you photograph/scan, or whatever it may be that you do to paintings, to get them to show on the computer without losing it’s qualities and changing the colours?

  7. Thanks to Franz and everyone else for the kind words. To answer the question – I just scan the artwork on a flatbed scanner with Descreening on to avoid a moire pattern that the collage would otherwise create when scanned. Then it’s just minor adjustments in Photoshop to bring the colours closer to the original artwork.

  8. Typography Awesome I like it.
