Letter by Letter

Drawn words are (by far) what fill the pages of my sketchbook more than any thing else. I love the lines, curves and detail that go into making each letter form. It's something that I will always lean on, especially on the days where I have a creative block with what subject matter to draw. So to get the momentum going I just pick a letter from the alphabet and bring it to life.

Mary Kate McDevitt does this with phenomenal skill. She's a full time illustrator whose done work for some big time clients, and now has a daily project where she draws one single letter from the alphabet. You'll do yourself a favor to check her site often for inspiration. Below are letters Y, Q, C, G, and U drawn by Miss McDevitt.

Nice work, hand drawn typography is something or a rarity with all the technology about.
