Lizard Alphabet

My Alphabet

This project was for a lettering and typography class. We had to create an alphabet using any kind of object or animal. I was stumped.
One week before the project was due I went out to my car and saw a lizard sunning itself. This lizard was twisted in the most bizzare manner. It became the inspiration for my alphabet.
The entire project took about 24 hours to complete. I started with individual drawings of each letter in pencil. I taped each individual letter on the final sheet of paper for proper spacing. Next, I copied my indivdual drawings on to the final sheet with charcoal pencil. Then I went over the drawing in ink and finally colored pencil.

This alphabet won first place in the lettering and typography catagory at Santa Fe Community College Graphic Design Student Show.
