  • Letter Transformation: Z
    Exploring letterforms through illustration and image translation
  • This project was built around the concept of simplifying shapes and finding these simple forms elsewhere in the world. Using the letter Z, I started by brainstorming all of the words that I could find beginning with the letter Z, and sketching out my interpretations of the ones that I liked. From there, I revised the sketches trying to find ways to represent these words within the shape of the letter. The illustrations below are the result of this experiment, representing Zaboomafoo (the lemur), the popularity of Zebra print, and Zebra Grass respectively, all within the shape of the letter Z.
