Drawing an alphabet – V
Initial idea: psychedelic
I wanted to do an over the top 60s /art deco (a lot of the 60s stuff was art deco inspired) bulbous shape that almost wasn’t a letter. I was thinking mainly about this by Seymour Chwast.
Half an idea
This took ages because my ideas were too vague and contradictory and could not be reconciled with reality (c.f. Brexit, Trump). I wanted it to be more bulbous and blowsy but still recognisably a ‘V’.
Even now I’m thinking that this doesn’t look like a unified letter but that there is a letter struggling to get out. After I’d finished it I saw that Chwast had made an alphabet based on his ‘a’1 and I don’t like his ‘V’ at all.
This is part of a project to draw the letters of the alphabet in different styles.
