Want to dive in a wall of A’s? You can! To celebrate it’s twentieth birthday, type foundry Typotheque has an nice exhibition (not only fonts) at the Kunstmuseum Den Haag. But hurry up: it’s only till 3 november! Happy birthday: Peter Bil’ak (guy with white blouse).
The art of Christoph Niemann makes me chuckle. Playful humor with a pinch of fresh insights. Out now and a bit more serious is his new book ‘Hopes and Dreams’. Of course I love the handwritten texts!
The founding project on INDIEGO PrinCube-The World’s Smallest Mobile Color Printer is definitly magic!
Motion lives in stillness. I love this book! Poemotin by Takahiro Kurashima Publisher: Lars Müller
If you visit the beautiful Seduction gallery in Naturalis (Biodiversity Center in Leiden) you’ll find a hot secret room. In this room I handlettered some nice words I have never heard before.
Beginning to draw at the top is not traditional nor very logical to do. But the video of Trương DP drawing from top to bottom like a printer is incredible fascinating. Sometimes I also do not write from left to right, like here and here.
Naturalis (Biodiversity Center in Leiden) reopened her doors with stunning new exposition rooms (tip!). For the ‘Earth’ room (aardezaal) I draw no less than 8751 letters on basalt stone (which came from the major Dutch Enclosure Dam). In the earthroom you can experience the forces of the earth live.
For the gallery ‘Temptation’ in Naturalis, I lettered seven slogans on a advertising column. My favorite is “The smell of love: buy our fragrances here” made in RAL 4003! For more ‘handletters’ I’ve done in Naturalis Leiden see my portfolio and Instagram.
Our roadtrip brought us to Ljubljana (Slovenia). It wasn’t just a beautiful name on the map: no, it was a beautiful city! With friendly people, nice food and… great handletters! Thank you Ljubljana for meeting you and hopefully see you soon! (Photos randomly taken in the city)
…it’s the 728th birthday of zwitserland! Whooooo!
