Phase 2 of the second tattoo i’m going to have Adam from Adambombgallerie.com work his magic on. this is going to start atop my hand and continue up my forearm to my elbow region. going to be a pretty spectacular tattoo when done. this also may be one of the more indepth typography treaments i’ve done. printed the original vector art out to scale, pieced it together on the light table and then proceeded to layer some sketching paper over it inking this into the current phase. had allot of fun with it. and yes, for those wondering, i have consulted adambomb to make sure the line thinkness and variations are tattoo-able.
minga started work on his second tattoo with Adambomb tattoo’s. this tattoo is going to pretty awesome; starting on top of my hand going up to my elbow region. Adambomb does such great work i’m sure it’s going to be amazing.
This is Einstein Typeface, a custom display type I created a few time ago especially to use it for a personal graphic design project. I’m very happy to announce that this project got featured on Design and Design Book of the Year – Volume three, and also on CMYK magazine, issue # 49.
I want to describe it as a retro-futuristic type, just like Einstein personality; a guy that lived in the past, but he came from future…
Hello dear friends,
Today is the big day, when I’m breaking the glass, here on the KDU. I’ll present to you two posters based on typography, that got featured on Design and Design Book of the Year – volume three.
I started a small project based on type a few months ago. I used for it famous quotes of well-known artists combined with only few suggestive graphic design elements.

YAW / You Are We / theKDU
The format for these images will be self explanatory. Breaking out! Pushing some illustration medium in the first set and Logo in the second set. Simple black and white basics. The djinn character stands to represent various aspects of my perception of YAW. Completed first in Sketch and Acrylic on card, Scanned and then muscled into electrickery for some extra pressure from the Wacom.
Recently heading back to illustration to expand my horizons, the Sepia lick on this image was the final touch. A softer, although jagged approach to a huge statuesque presence and a type treatment to balance the composition with some various effects. Most pictures that I complete are image ready for 12″ x 12″ prints for ease of collating.
Inspired by the imagery and translation of Renaissance.
This is my favorite work. See more in my behance
YAW is the new experimental typeface. It is a bitmap, full color typeface. This time around, is a mixture of hand drawn anatomy parts and custom made brushes, with a strong graphical language. Stay tuned for the font release later this year!

A type treatment and effect experiment. The central smashed effect and small background shards were all made of separate vector elements. The Smashed edges are a reworked graphic from the internet which was altered to move it away from the original. The type was slightly re-weighted with various layers / overlays to create the finished graphic.
