paint on print

Love this. Graphic artist Phil Yamada created his own version of the alphabet using acrylic paint on scrap sheets of newspaper. His letterforms are incredibly innovative, and many give a nod to pop culture marvels (i.e. clockwork orange, pacman, American Gothic, pez, etc.) The result is surprisingly stunning.

See more of Yamada's paint on print here and here.

(I think the R and the V are my faves.)

Wow! I love it! I can imagine each letter being hanged up on a funky living room with chip-white painted walls!

I love the F the most ;p
