Variation of Letter Forms

It is amazing to see how a small corner of a letter can vary. The letters, of course, were set into different fonts, which may or may not totally make the letters unrecognizable.

Below is the finished work. I didn’t post the process here, since it is quite easy to do so, and much of it resembles what I did in Variation of Letter Forms.

The upper group:    The upper left letter is a letter W, with the font of “apple casual”. This still look like part of a letter since we can still image it as part of a letter form. The upper right letter is a “Geneva R”. This is still, similar to a W or N, nothing new. But I would like to put two letters as such in this picture, because they highlights the name of this project: “variation of letter forms”.

The lower group is a less historical type of “letter”. Look at them, aren’t they look naughty. The lower left letter is a “curls MT X”. Its spiral shape reminds me of Sweet Hut, a desert store on Buford Highway, Atlanta.  Sweet Hut always has these spirals decorated outside of their store, with neon pink. Whenever I drive through, it catches my eye and reminds me of the word “delicious”. Oh yes, “x” is delicious.

The lower right letter is “Chalkduster L”. The original letter looks like the picture below. I cannot remember which part of the letter that I used for this image, but it should be obvious that the letter is quite “chalkduster”. I especially like this letter font, because it is apt for delivering different emotions: it’s less defined and somewhat out-of-line edge can be used for thriller movies, cartoons or even a school dance. This is a very useful letter font.
