Typography and lettering are distinct yet intimately interwoven art forms. While typography relies on established fonts, lettering relies on the hand of an artist. However, since hand lettering, like typography, is usually destined for print or the web, it's critical for illustrators to be able to transform their letterform drawings into pristine vector graphics. In this installment of Drawing Vector Graphics, Von Glitschka takes members through the entire creative process of hand lettering: starting with analog drawing tools, then using Adobe Illustrator to turn his drawings into vector graphics that can be further customized and scaled up or down. Von also introduces styling tips to create more compelling graphics and examples from some of the industry's best artists.
I’m remixing and remastering recordings for the forthcoming Vector Lovers compilation, tentatively titled Electrospective. Tracks undergoing renovation include Girl + Robot, Nightwalking Your Memory, Lake Nocturne, Kissed You By The Fountain and Tokyo Glitterati. The increase in production quality is striking, when played side by side with the original mixes - especially listening on headphones. The compilation features a new track, Floating Point.
