Sketches in an extreme horizontal format

11 July, 2015. Combining sketches with my love of typography – and then in my patented lazy fashion managing to keep things a bit imprecise, I’m finding I like this coloring-book-cartoon-ish sort of drawing approach. It reminds me a little of children’s book illustration, but then I say that about a lot of stuff it turns out.

Part of the appeal is the motif: very horizontal, in a bumper sticker sort of format. I’ve tried going with an extreme vertical, as well as something closer to the Golden Mean. The elements don’t seem to have the same charm. Perhaps I like it because it feels a bit like a comic strip? Who knows? Who cares?
