Euan's first four letters






My inspiration comes from my love of classic cars, nice shiny ones with lots of chrome bits, where these letters came from.

A simple 7 by 7 frame using red electrical wire from another car was used to isolate the individual letter.

Where this theme will lead me, who knows, but what a great excuse to photograph old cars!

I can't choose between the R and the S - love them both! And they are all so nice and shiny!

What a clever idea, to find interesting letterforms on classic cars. So much inspiration. Thanks for sharing, Euan.

Ah Euan ... magnificent. You have a natural instinct for the lettering arts. Don't go telling your wife you need to purchase another classic car for more letters though!

Wait till the boys at the A.S.of A. hear about this Euan! You'll be excommunicated before the next committee meeting. We can't have accountants being creative in this country!

P.S. Not being an accountant I can safely admit to being impressed by this artistic outburst :)

E - great idea - they look good - hope you don't get picked up for snopping around classica cars taking close up photos. By the way the red flex frame is a winner.B
