Type-tastic Tuesday my crafty Craftside readers! Today my inspiration comes from the coffee table book of 900 images, The Art of Punk: The Illustrated History of Punk Rock Design. I love design books for inspiration. I spotted this page that had hand drawn barbed wire type and I thought I'd try writing my quote of the day in barbed wire font.
How I drew the barbed wire type face:
I drew lines of pointy ellipses as you can see in the "N" and "E" then I added little messy condensed "Z" shapes where the pointy ellipses met. I should emphasize messy! See the little scribbles under the de Gaulle? That's who said this quote, "Deliberation is the work of many men. Action of one alone."
