Foxy Font Females by Ink Finger

These four striking portraits of women are composed entirely of type from particular fonts.

The Baskerville model, drawn from a font designed in 1757, is the boldest and proudest of the four.

“No letterform has been skewed, stretched, flipped or any other bastardizing technique,” says Matt Sutter, the American artist behind the portraits.

“So the letters are pure as the driven snow.”

Mr Sutter, from Philadelphia, is selling prints of the images from his website.

Brazil’s pride and joy – Cris Vector

Sao Paulo, Brazil

One of the artists that we are in awe of is Christano Siqueria (AKA Cris Vector or to his friends Cris). His background is in traditional drawing. As he crossed over into the world of Graphic design, Cris obtained a flare for more commercial applications of his talent. He has an impressive portfolio that features some powerful brands.

We were captivated by the tenderness of his style. He has a way of inserting life into the eyes of his portraits. take a moment to explore some of the images from his 2008 calendar (which happens to be a steal at only ($19.99).

ADVERTISING AND ART COLLIDE – BRANDED™

Toronto, Ontario

 

Adam Jarvis is a creative director. He has enjoyed a successful 14 year career building brands for some of the world’s most noticeable names. Adam is also a classically trained painter and illustrator. These two sides of his creative life have been in constant conflict for many years. The strategic side of his brain and the free spirited artistic side finally collided in the form of an art show entitled BRANDED™. The show consisted of 12 female vector portraits created entirely out of logos. See how many you can find.

“My business life has been focused on building brands – designingadvertisements that sell things.

My artistic life has primarily been about the female form – painting portraits of women as powerful and magical characters.

Shortly after the birth of my daughter Olivia this year, I stumbled upon a place in which the two collide.

My new collection BRANDED™ is a series of 12 portraits. 4 of which are multi-layerd between 5 sheets of glass. Each digitally created piece is comprised from a pool of thousands of logos collected across my career as a graphic designer.

The subjects are also brands themselves. Transformed into goddesses of capitalism.

As consumers, are we defined by the brands we buy?Collectively are we the sum of our purchases?

The answer is the question – BRANDED™

Dedicated to my wife Natalie, my daughter Olivia,

and the memory of Gerald Caracciolo (June 22, 1957 – May 25, 2006)”

– From the BRANDED™ gallery program by Adam Jarvis

In addition, Adam also composed small poems to accompany each of his pieces to give you a sense of personality for each. The idea was that if a customer would identify with a piece on a personal level, they would take her home. His instincts were correct. All of these prints sold out.
