From a to z in one fell swoop

Just in time to post my dotty alphabet before Italy enters the new year... To those of you who have already crossed into 2013: Buon Anno!

This alphabet has taken quite a journey to reach its present form. Before I'd even finished the first alphabet, I was already busy planning—and having great fun with—a 27-cube alphabet (one cube per letter plus a title cube) for the dotty-themed ALaW. Partway through the autumn (in the northern hemisphere, that is), I had already begun scaling back my idea—and collecting plastic bottle tops for a possible alternate process—but then another idea struck in the kitchen one day. To read more about how this alphabet came to be, please visit this post on my blog.

I have really enjoyed participating in ALaW 2012. Thank you to all of the artists for the past twelve months-worth of inspiration...and special thanks to Fiona for giving us this space & handling the details...

Happy New Year to all!

    2. This is awesome! I only just found out about this blog - and the follow up. I am already maxed out on daily/weekly projects, but who knows!

  2. I love this alphabet and its cubes in so many ways - it is vibrant and eye-catching and makes me smile!

    1. Thanks so much, Fiona...even though it was so different from the involved abecedary-type of project I originally had in mind, this one ended up being pure fun. I'm really excited to see all of the new energy brought to this year's edition of letter-inspired art.
