fonts and texts are a minor fascination of mine. i love when fonts and text are used as art, not just back drop or names of, but as the actual work. i like the idea of the image of the font as the piece itself, and the meaning of the text being an added benefit for the viewer. recently i found liam devowski, on flickr. i love his stuff. really colorful, bittersweet statements.
he also does a lot of prints and drawings of synthesizers, but not average renditions. images that look like a keyboard, a moog and a spaceship morphed into one. i like liam's stuff because it's unexpected. different. but not out there. rainbow like colors inhabit his prints, making them happy and accessible but they tend to have a sad, sardonic side to them as well. which as a heart on my sleeve kind of girl from the east coast, these sorts of sentiments and subject matter scream to me, silently of course.
