Lisa's A through M
It has been a while since my first ALaW post, which was mainly a loose collection of ideas with very little direction. Although I finally did find myself on a path, and have been gradually building my alphabet (the non-dotty one), this is the first post showing my progress. To see a few more photos and read some notes on the process, please follow this link.
I have really enjoyed visiting the ALaW blog over the last few months—thanks to all of you for the inspiration!

Hi Lisa, love the way you have used part letters. Amazing what the mind recognises and translates! Nice crisp work, too.ReplyDelete
your letters simply look as an evidence, and I love the colors you've used.ReplyDelete
and ... Italy is not so far from my home (I'm French) and it would be great to taste your comestible letters !
This is really thinking outside the square. Superb.ReplyDelete
These are simply fantastic!!ReplyDelete
This design and its resolution is outrageously good! I love how it works; I love the hints of the letters; I love the colour combo; I love the perfection of the cut letters. Wow!ReplyDelete
I love your work, so graphic, original, artistic !ReplyDelete
I will be soon in Toscane, with an italian artist calligrapher, Massimo polello, do you know him ?
Beautifully done! As others have said, the creative way you used just a piece of each letter is striking and dramatic. Such an excellent alpha!ReplyDelete
wow - love this alphabet. The design is superb and the concept original and I have to agree with Fiona, outrageously good!ReplyDelete
Thank you all for your encouraging comments - and for all of the inspiration! It really is wonderful to see how many different ways you can interpret the alphabet...ReplyDelete
To Annik: I do not know Massimo Pelello, but have found his website and am looking forward to browsing his work. Buon viaggio!
