Motorcycle helmets, wooden signs and bananas. There’s a never ending source of solid objects that can be used as canvases for hand lettered artwork! Typically we see inspiring typographic designs on paper, but today’s inspiration showcase focuses on those that appear in more creative places, ranging from quite normal signage applications like shop windows and cafe walls, to the slightly more bizarre like hand tools and loaves of bread! Each one has been carefully illustrated by hand with ink and paint to create unique hand lettered works of art.
