Some hand drawn letter forms for all of you out there. This was my first assignment in Typography I this semester. DECORATIVE CAPS. Fingerprints, skin, tree bark, and growth were my inspiration.

I also spent a lot of time with the book, Hand Job, by Michael Perry, as I was trying to conceive my idea for these letter forms. This book is excellent. It opened my eyes to worlds of possibilities in design, letter forms, and aesthetic effect. Really great inspiration and a huge variety of styles and approaches to drawing our alphabet. It is a MUST HAVE book for all typographers or designers. Enjoy!
