I’ve been trying to get some lettering done recently. I found a bunch of inspiration sites on the web and I’ve been drawing nothing but letters in my sketchbook recently. So I did these tests for a band called “The Primate Fiasco” that I saw last year at Floydfest.
Another example after the break.
I was flipping by my facebook friends feed and I saw that one of my friends ‘liked’ the Danger Rangerz. I think they’re a metal band from her high school days or something. But I don’t really care who they are I just liked the name. So I made the first thing that came to mind…

I’ve been really interested in custom lettering for a long time now. I’ve just started producing work that I’m happy with. There’s something abotu custom lettering and fonts that appeals to both sides of my personality. It has the creative influence of finding out where each letter is going and how they’re interact with eachother. Then comes in the technical side of getting it into illustrator. But then my obsessive side takes over and I get lost trying to make everything exactly right. I think my work suffers here, I try to line everything up too much and it allÂ ends up being too exact and looking a little stiff. But I’m working on it.
Wu’s Garden in Vienna has a drink that they call “The Fog Cutter” which is a chinese resturant version of a Long Island iced tea.Â They only allow you to have 2, but if there is a secret “Beerfest” style showdown. Then this can be the prize.Â Just print it out and pin it to the shirt of the passed out champion.
