In 1988 when I was starting out in calligraphy I did this quotation.  I had done this in calligraphy but never completed it, so here is my latest rendition of the quote.  This features my latest script, “Rotunda Love Typeface”.  The lettering is very clear and easy to read.  This typeface was used on choir music sheets in very large letters so that everyone in the choir could read the words.  Typically the upper case letters (which were not quite invented yet) were done in a uncial versal (not shown).

Resident Evil HD Signature

This piece is actually a test of combining my gothic textura tall and narrow typeface with my new Canterbury Uncial typeface.  I think they look pretty cool together.  They compliment each other quite well.  Differences in size, spacing and texture also work well.  The long decender on the uncial Rs play well together and magically worked out that way.  The uncial letters are evenly spaced a bit wider than normal to give it a more formal look.  The diamonds are used to fill the empty space in the M, O, P, and T characters.  Layout design, spacing and balance are so critical in calligraphy yet unfortunately often overlooked.  All of this is was done by eye with help of a few guide lines.
This is an example where old-school authentic hand done calligraphy can be applied to modern movies, music, video games and other products.  I like the overall look of this piece.  I liked the first Resident Evil film. Never played any of the video games but imagine they look great too.  This would look amazing on the back of a T-shirt, or side of a wall.  Cheers Steve

This year again, I was commissioned by the French Consulate in Wuhan to design the “FETE DE LA MUSIQUE” poster.
On the 21rst & 22nd of June, Wuhan, China.

My first idea was to have that massive golden bling, a hiphop cliché in the West, which is also worn by some Chinese sketchy guys.

Both Precious and show-off.

It s the first title I design mixing latin-letters with chinese-characters. Once in a while it’s cool to use colors also.

This mural was created for the REBEL Youth Week.  The mural located in a popular skate park in Mississauga Ontario features a 14′ by 12′ artwork that explores the old school writing of calligraphy with modern day communications platform Twitter.  Here are some images of the mural and its creation.  The calligraphy was hand lettered using a brush while all of the layout was done using illustration software (open source GIMP and Inkscape).

Hi KDU friends!

Here is a recent work I did for Sony PlayStation. Created exclusively for The Studio, the “Eye Like You” theme has been designed to dress the PlayStation with something vibrant, explosive and a bit sexy. Hope you like it ;-)
