Graphic Artist, Leandro Senna stepped out of his normal element of designing with the computer, and took a more hands on approach with this project “Bob Dylan’s Hand Lettering Experience” in which he uses unique pen and pencil typography to illustrate Bob Dylan’s lyrics.
About the project, Senna writes:
Inspired by Bob Dylan´s Subterranean Homesick Blues video, where he flips cards with the lyrics as the song plays, I decided to recreate those cards with handmade type. I ended up doing all the lyrics, and not just some of the words, as Dylan did.
There are 66 cards done in one month during my spare time using only pencil, black tint pens and brushes. The challenge was not to use the computer, no retouching was allowed. Getting a letter wrong meant starting the page over.
Here’s the Bob Dylan music video that inspired the project:
