Mmm by Simanion Mmm by Simanion
A little typography thing done with watercolours. Everything is an "M", or part of an "M". Well....except for the background tints of colour, but I'm sure if you looked at them under a microscope you'd see millions of tiny m-shaped pigments of paint.

Anyways, hope you like! And if you turn it upsidedown it's all "W"s. Www.

Um,could you do R's next? lol Very nice:)

He erected the mountain-top flag and then sadly died from all the warm colours.

Woah, sheesh, fantastic! That's old skewl alright, typography art actually done in a natural media... and with something as finicky and prone to bleeding as watercolour, you're brave! And pulled it off without any problems as far as I can see, that's crazy the level of detail you have on this considering the medium. This is so much more impressive than the masterful typography collages you see in vector, because when it comes to natural media, there are no nodes to move around, no "undo" to save your butt from an accidental ink splatter. This all is patience and a good hand.

:+fav:

Thankyou so much! You totally validate all the traditional medium-based typography work I do, lol. It's like the only way to be noticed, or taken seriously as a typographer is to make a big vector artwork, with all the usual sheen and finish. Don't get me wrong, I love it too, but its becomming cliched. Anyway, thanks for your great comment :aww:

Yeah that's pretty much where you see the chunk of typography-related art these days, all the PS razzle-dazzle and throw in some 3D lettering for kicks! I do like the simpler stuff, almost even more, because it takes it back down to the very basics (rhythm, pattern, form, shape, contrast), stuff like from Si Scott, total craziness! And all of the typography masters would agree with what you're doing anyway :) It's so much harder by hand.
