alpha beta

My personal project over the last week or two has been centered around a hand drawn patterned alphabet. Ive really fallen in love with hand drawn type all over again. I remember the day at college when my friend Jon came running into the computer room with a copy of Mike Perrys "Hand Job". He found the copy in the College libary, and ive had the book ever since. I just couldnt return it!.It was like the bible of typography to me.

Check the orginal individual letter drawings on my Flickr, Theres also a larger picture which shows all the type. Sweet.

  8. The models on the Michael Kors runway always look breezy and beautiful, and Spring 2014 was no different. Like Michael's past collections, sporty beauty was a common theme in the makeup, hair, and nails.

"You can sense a brow or a lip or michael kors the eyes, but everything's just a little bit diffused," he said. A slight berry flush on the lips, courtesy of Michael Kors Longchamp Bag Lip Lacquer in Dame ($24) and two types of bronzer — Michael Kors Bronze Powder in Glow and Flush ($50) — created Coach Purses a healthy, vibrant look.Lead hairstylist Orlando Pita wanted the girls to look like they'd come off of a night out. A messy, Longchamp Outlet loose bun with plenty of free strands was pretty but had a bit of an edge. And there were no hair elastics Coach Bags in sight; Pita created the knot using just twists and pins. Jin Soon Choi swathed the nails in Michael Kors Nail Laquer Longchamp in Hint ($18), which she was calling a "foundation nude," a color so effortless that it blended into each models' individual skin Michael Kors Purses tone.
