Custom Lettering

This piece is available for purchase for $25 + shipping

Lettering extraordinaire Jude Landry has another gem for us to covet. From a distance the sweet message is harmonious and readable, but up close becomes a Marble Madness game of dimension. I would love to see his lettering process—how does he make it look so easy?

I wanted to create an art print for type lovers that would showcase one of my original alphabets (unofficially named blackzidenz). I hand screen-printed silver ink onto French Construction Blacktop paper to add to my collection of silver on dark paper posters (like this one previously featured on FPO).

I premixed the silver ink with some transparent white because I’d had problems in the past with the silver drying too quickly in the screen. This solution worked perfectly, as I was able to quickly print 80 posters without stopping.
