Friday Free Font 39
A good old typeface is 47 from Hendrick Rolandez from Bethoncourt, designer of Glamour, Magna, Valkyire and Coco. As MAGNA, 47 is a free typeface based on a “vintage” style. This typeface contains all main characters from A to Z - capitals & lowercases are the same and numbers from 0 to 9. The work of the 26 year old graphic art director is very amazing.

Some animal gestures, some done with a Speedball Nib (I think it is now one of my newest favorite inking mediums) with sumi- e ink, and some faber castell orange and roller ball pen. The nib ones were done in 4 ish minutes (except the leopard) and the last picture are all gestures in 1 min 10 sec I think?
We have to draw a lot in our sketchbooks so I do mostly gesture work

Say hello to the new Magallanes Condensed Family, a contemporary neo-humanist sans serif font designed by Daniel Hernández. Its strokes and terminals are related to the calligraphic strokes from humanist typefaces. It comes with 8 styles, from Ultra Light to Black, each with its true italics. Every weight comes with alternative glyphs for a more dynamic use. Magallanes is the perfect titling font to complement text faces in magazines, logotypes, etc.

Distinctive hand style lettering is an essential skill for artists and designers. Deftly executed hand crafted letter forms are a nearly forgotten art in an age of endless free fonts. Graffiti is one of the last reservoirs of highly refined, well practiced penmanship. The most reviled and persecuted form of Graffiti, the Tag, is seldom appreciated for the raw beauty of its skeletal letter forms. Most tags are removed immediately, and thus the casual viewer seldom has a chance to discern the difference between entry level and advanced hand styles. Within the pages of Flip the Script, author Christian Acker has systematically analyzed the best graffiti hand styles, contextualizing the work of graffiti writers from around the United States. Acker presents the various lettering samples in a clean organized format, giving the material a proper, formal treatment evoking classic typography books. Buy it here: http://amzn.to/1bdPmKs
