explorations and endeavors of ian jean gilpin cozzens

I drew all these fonts & letterforms by hand, usually with pencil, paper, and tracing paper (and sometimes a ruler). Most of them I then cut out of rubylith stencil film or traced in ink on mylar for screenprinting. Notes about found fonts & drawing letterforms here.

Take inspiration if you feel it — I've been infinitely inspired by type designs I've seen in the world around me — but keep it awesome, no stealin for commercial purposes!

This is only a small selection: almost all of my prints & posters involve hand-drawn letterforms... There's also an effort in the works to complete some of these alphabets and digitize them as actual fonts — if you're interested in hearing about that when & if it happens, let me know & I'll keep you in the loop.
