The idea for this series was created from a simple 2-step process. 1) Search for a meaningful Anagram, which is a set of letters that can be used to spell out two or more words. Look for Anagrams that have a nice juxtaposition of meaning between the two words. 2) Loosely or tightly lock-up individual hand-drawn letters to create a series of monograms that make up the two-word illustrative piece.
So far, I’ve produced 4 of these, and I think there are more to come. They are a great exploratory exercise in layout and interconnected lettering styles. To see the high-res versions, head over to my Flickr here. Enjoy!
