TYPE IS BEAUTIFUL GROUP OF LETTERS, NOT A GROUP OF BEAUTIFUL LETTERS.

6 hours of drawing and designing and 13 hours of construction over three days has resulted in my chalk typographic piece.

"TYPE IS BEAUTIFUL GROUP OF LETTERS" was completely hand drawn and illustrated and took up most of my time. "NOT A GROUP OF BEAUTIFUL LETTERS" is made up of the typefaces Baskerville and Bodoni.

I wanted the look of the piece to somewhat reflect the meaning behind the quote, and so the illustrative fashion of the decorative type alludes to the idea of "typography" being a visual aesthetic of letters. While the second half of the quote is very structured and formal, indicating the idea of the rigid words being the beautiful part.

I had tremendous fun and creative passion with this project and am excited to now be doing more for other people!
