Been doing a little sketchin’
Charcoal Number 2. 18X24 (2002)
I have never been a precise artist, and sometimes I envy that in other artists. Many friends of mine, who also happen to be artists, paint with with such careful precision and attention to detail. For me, though, it’s all about controlled chaos.. letting the paint do what it will, but being able to be predict the possibilities. I find my my way of painting very cathartic, but sometimes I wish I was a different kind of painter.
Perhaps this is why I enjoy graphic design so much, because in that I am very precise. That’s what makes it so different for me..
I designed an Art Deco style typeface, which I named Pimento. For an assignment I had to create a poster showcasing my typeface, so I thought I’d share it with you.. Enjoy!
