This artist’s work is very creative. With the usage of her hands and fingers, she managed to create 26 alphabets, capital and non. It is a very interesting concept and unexpected that she was able to create so many.

The concept of this artist is very interesting! He merge the concept of the birth of alphabets to biology, and it was a very interesting combination.
With the letter S, he incorporated a Spine into it, as it starts with the letter S too. Even the way he constructs makes the cut very realistic!

This really inspired me to do a letterform using other mediums apart from traditional and digital.

For my hawker centre illustration, I wanted to have a flat lay style illustration, to show it from the top view of a table.

These are some of the researches and references I found online which are very helpful to my process.

Till then,
