If you're a fan of beautiful typography, I'm sure you'll find the works of a young French illustrator impressive -- and even inspiring if you also dabble in typography and handlettering!
It’s been a while since I went to a handlettering lesson/session but I’ve also been doing some practicing and reading/watching some tutorials whenever time allows. So, when I spotted the stippled typography work of French illustrator Xavier Casalta at This is Colossal, it immediately became filed under my “Inspiration” bookmark folder.
With a 0.10 mm Isograph Drawing Pen, Xavier creates clusters of tiny dots to form solid, cursive, and ornate letters, and even increases the density (for the lack of a better term) of some portions of the piece for a gradient effect. Yes, with just one pen! A closer look at the details reveals the painstaking process involved in designing and executing each stippled masterpiece. Simply amazing, don’t you think?
I know I’ll be spending some time browsing around his Tumblr/Website from now on for constant inspiration. I urge all you typography fans to check it out as well!
