Scratched Letter

In 2003 I got a hold of a Wacom Dabler mouse pen for the first time. I tested the tool in Illustrator scratching within the outlines of a piece of text.

I started collecting all the different versions of the a,b,c... and piled them up into this alphabet:

By stacking 1 up to 200 different drawn versions of one letter, the letter gets thicker and more black.

By resizing the shape more details become visible.

I collected the sketches and made it into a type specimen book Letter Sketches.

I made a Letter Flip Book to zoom in on the details of the letter.
