Day two of huddling up with this icy stuff. I wasn’t really expecting to be following up so swiftly, but weather is weather, and with the year as slow as it’s been so far, I’m certainly not complaining! This time my letters took on a slightly different form, coming off those nice flat, fragmented planes I chanced upon yesterday.

I though a ’round’ font might complement these, and ended up going with a traditional dot matrix face, subjecting it to various textures and random positioning. I also tried to shake the backgrounds up a little for each character; they’re all different but the dots manage to keep them in union, I think.

Just for a laugh, here are some earlier renders:

Fun fun. It has felt good to be making stuff and buzzing again. Let’s see if it lasts this time around!

  2. Absolutely loving these icy images Jacob, so crystalline and so beautiful. you really have a gift for lettering, it’s not easy but today’s and yesterday’s images work a treat. I can see these images blown up to a very large scale too and hanging on the wall of a posh contemporary art gallery, they’re so strong 😊

      Oh Phil, how kind – thank you very very much! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed them; they really took their own form, and it was great to be buzzing like that again after what has felt like a long, lethargic winter. More snow on the way tonight apparently – stay warm, that goes for you and the centaur!

      • Glad you’re buzzing again Jacob, I felt pretty lethargic during the winter too, hopefully spring is just round the corner ……….hmm, maybe not!

    Wow! This is so cool! (Pardon the pun…) I like how you were able to make the letters appear hidden and yet still readable. Great color choices too! 👍
