Lettering Leaks

Lettering Leaks
Drops of words design.

Recently there has been a lot of leaking: leaked emails, leaked conversations, leaked information. Even my house’s plumbing suffered of leaks! So I guess this new trend had a bit of influence on my artwork. This sketch was a test for a project I started to develop months ago. It’s a rough hand-drawn 3D lettering design experiment with a vintage touch on a grunge old paper.
This illustration has certainly a warmer feeling than the one related to my Fake 3D Lettering Design post. In a certain way, it can be considered an evolution of one of the styles used for my Illustrated Indy’s Quote image. You can often achieve interesting effects by extruding depth from a font. But even more interesting stuff can come out of leaks!

A Red Rose For Valentine’s Day

A Red Rose For Valentine's Day
A minimalist illustration for lovers.

Handing a flower to your love is a classic thing to do on Saint Valentine’s day. When you love Nature and wildlife too, you can choose to give, as a present, a simple drawing of a rose, instead of killing a real one. Or you can prepare a heart-shaped chocolate cake. Love is blind, but you can still hear what goes on your mind. The following text was hacked from a lover’s brain.

Our forgotten and implacable fire loves the Tomorrow. You owe me foam with carnations’ shadow in baskets. Your stroking shows the rustic looking of your flower. Salt-rose seeks choking your love, so rain lost the voice. Secret circles sleep together. No dawn. Spring topaz loved me. Vegetable lips starving because my hair prowl with you. Your beloved drift, tenderness soul. Kisses repeat and nourish me. Feeds love, drops heart. A liquid leaf extinguished my silent mouth. Made flowers loved earth. My crave of heights roams little smoke steps. Shoots me like bluebells. But climbs anguished sweetness. I fire your mountains on believe that you are the seaweed over my happy falls. Even bread is dark.

Europe Last: Magazine Cover Design

Greece Last
Democracy on the day of execution.

This illustration was inspired by a famous German magazine cover related to U.S. president Donald Trump, on which he was depicted beheading the statue of Liberty. In search of a fair visual sarcasm equality, I decided to create an alternative version of the cover. Instead of the POTUS, now there is the COG (Chancellor of Germany), and in place of the beheaded neoclassical sculpture of Liberty Island you can see the Greek goddess Athena in a less splatter representation. Murder is still implicated, pushed through economic terrorism and financial warfare. Greece, the cradle of democracy, looks like is going to die alongside Europe. The Euro bait is not working anymore. The truth is coming out from Der Zerbrochene Spiegel (The Broken Mirror)!

Legs Factory Drawing

Legs Factory
Put on the red high heels and dance the blues.

This mixed media artwork was made with some dancing legs drawn on vintage paper and a wallpaper floral pattern collage. It’s a minimal illustration based on a limited colour palette and a simple line of black ink. A pair of woman’s legs on high heels pops out from the crowd on the background. Somehow, this image throws you back to the fabulous sixties. You can’t hear the music, but you can feel the party! The following quotes were inspired by the owner of those legs.

To reach insane. I remember life can be giving. Going on, I could change. They love misunderstood hours. Forty-eight living people’s dark hair like reality about developing. Keep that sweetness on. I bet power. It’s destroyed. God blessed to realize, I had to workout. I make love. Someone upset projecting their walk. People stop my try to face foolish pills. I order, you go. Understand white marble crap, everything is their psychological problem. Leisure time forever. Slave to a sort of thing. You cared about nonsense while I was really passionate. You run like you want to wear my earrings. My head stripped enough. A very blue difference between you and me. People had fun to anyone that wandered. They will think you drove your life alone. Bat wings moving flowers and silver. The moment smiles a mask. They like being through the same affair. Life as isolated sunshine for something quite beautiful. People’s eyes, being children and flowers of the blue sky, start popping in living (but have not that risk) because they ward. Painting your taste to radiate a crazy lasting time. Physically communicate to establish sex from something I’m rebelling. Weird blew my each day. Down them up with thousands and thousands. You are around and live alone. I’m changing your public fool through those little ones. Youth is off and cut. The psychopathic book will find they deserve mockery. Lines under mean and nothing superlative. Nothing superlative had really left me by that condition. You care and they have it. I keep that superstar and express myself. Habit patterns smile. Sad Bobby maneuvers an unhinged disturbance. You are dark to the power. Strawberries without a few fulfilled drugs can’t know peaches. There’s walk down faith: a very lost ego reacts adolescently. I just stop and tell my eyelashes just to pretend attitudes. I own by psychological development. Flowers tasted like writing.

He Will Not Divide Us

He Will Not Divide Us
A mixed media collage about the evil palindrome.

This artwork was inspired by the “he will not divide us” mantra. It includes a couple of bats, traces of vintage lettering, and a bit of dark ink. The following random prophecy is part of the drawing.

Based on Open Society interest, required Foundations laws work in apparent activities. Our employees strive to be located.
