Typing with Pencils

Rylsee loves letters. They’re on his mind all day long judging by the way his sketchbook have nothing else drawn in them. I often spend all day staring at letters too—on paper or on a screen—but never thought about them like this. His sketchbook is playful, funny, and often interactive and now that I've been staring at his hand drawn type for a while, I'm starting to develop a fixation on them as well.

Follow @rylsee on instagram if his obsession with letters is rubbing off on you too.

Bold Shapes That Demand Your Attention

There's so much to like about the black and white spreads in Tyler Keeton Robbins's sketchbook. It's like having monochromatic dreams of symbols and patterns. His stark palette, gradients, archetypes, and organic shapes are intended to play in our collective unconscious. "Drawing, painting, or creating anything with impatient urgency," Tyler writes, "allows ideas to evolve before they're corrupted by reason."

Beyond the psychology, his sketchbook art is just plain stunning. I'm mesmerized by how he's created meaning and intricacy and depth with extreme limitation of color, shape, and space. You want to check this out.

Type & Time: Drawn Typewriters

The sound is seductive: typebars striking ink ribbon; the bell of the carriage return swinging left. In my selective nostalgia, typewriters were never used by anyone except authors - typing stoically in a room with light filtered through plantation shutters, in the company of scotch glasses and a wastebasket of crumpled pages.The typewriter embodies a writing process that is hard and stark and dirty and mechanical. It’s a symbol of the beauty of process, the struggle of wordsmithing. And so my love for the typewriter is also a love for its aesthetic. I am giddy for illustrations of vintage typewriters, drawings where you can almost smell time and dust preserved. Here are some of my favorites.

Super Sweet Jay Geurink

Jay Geurink, a good homie down here in Austin is also a rad maker of sorts. He works with found objects and wooden pieces to form colorful, often animal related works. His detail with a paintbrush is pretty killer and his type work is top notch in my books.

Jay also collaborated with Jessica and myself on a Crummy House zine in the past and has contributed to many art projects in the past. He also kitty sits our cats when we go out of town, so he's A-plus in our books.

Sur Alert!

Bangkok illustrator Suralert jirawangso’s women inhabit an inked, abstract world of green spruce trees, coffee-cup-rainbows, lipstick, and mushrooms. I’ve tried-- I can’t pick a favorite. His drawings layer patterned wallpaper, geometric shapes, hand-drawn type, and a confounding control of color. How do you say love in Thai?

All You Gotta Do Is Repeat After Me

As a kid, did you ever have one of those posters on your bedroom wall with the letters of the alphabet? What did yours look like? It's been a few years (I mean, ahem... quite a few years) since I mastered my ABC's, but I still love seeing all the letters of our alphabet lined-up together. And since I'm pretty sure that my first alphabet poster was in plain old Comic Sans, here's something a bit more playful for today's letter-learners... and alphabet-enthusiasts!

Keep Feeling Fascination

I think I'm obsessed with the doodles, drawings and hand-drawn type of Stephanie Kubo. It's hard to describe her work because it seems she can do almost anything.

She doodles beautiful and colorful hoops, loops and circles with an almost infinite compulsion.

Then you'll discover she draws women wearing the most fascinating and intricate head wear.

The best part, her control of eye-popping hand-drawn lettering that look as if they were enhanced in high-definition. And it doesn't just end there either, visit her site for everything else. Big love Steph.
