Two lovely alphabets surfaced this week. The one at the left is an Easter font from Zim and Zou (Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann), a French duo that usually stick to paper sculpture for their very famous illustrations.
This polymer work (they say plasticine but I refuse to believe it) is overgrown, lush and inviting. Their illustrations look like they should be tried in polymer and I wonder if we’ll see more of their work in this vein.
The second alphabet is from Raku Inoue who developed a charming monster alphabet. This Canadian artist was born in Japan and he uses polymer as a way to bridge the gap between painting and photography.
I saved these sites until Friday so that the extended browsing they require wouldn’t interfere with your work or home life. I was entranced by these masterful storytellers and you may be too. Enjoy your weekend.
