I love type (guilty as charged). But I also love nature illustrations. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this wonderful piece called “Alpha Bird” by artist Marcus Fischer made entirely out of letters and punctuation. The bird is a black capped chickadee.
Here’s a little backgound:
Marcus records and performs music under the name map~map and as part of the duo unrecognizable now. The exploration of sight and sound has been a continual focus for Marcus, both in his personal work and in his repeated role as co-curator of vision+hearing, a series of audio/visual events with the goal of bringing musicians and filmmakers together for collaborative performances. He has also had the opportunity to score various short films and videos and enjoys experimenting with unconventional sound sources to create music.
I too have a weak spot for typography! Really enjoy his work.
