3-D drop cap ideas. I'm thinking about making a faceted letter, so right now I'm looking at diamond shapes and thinking about materials I could use. Something transparent could be nice. Or something shiny to catch the light.

Drop Cap numba one! A=beginning of the alphabet.
I've had this general shape for an A stuck in my head for a while now. I started just blocking out that form and decided to outline it to open the letter up. I think this simple outline works the best. It really lets you focus on the structure of the letter while letting your eye flow easily across it. I also cut out the counter and the space below the bar. I think this really lets the shape breathe, but it would be awkward to apply to the digital world.
Our second Drop Cap is a revised version of this one, so I'll have to find something to do with that space.

Typeface by Jack Crossing. I'm absolutely obsessed with triangles, and Mr. Crossing's work is just full of admiration for this majestic shape. His work is a glittery mix of sharp geometry and ephemeral colors and textures that I just want to sink my teeth into. Growl.

I've been really getting into maps lately. Hand-drawn maps are so personal, and there's so many different ways to go with them. Nigel Peake has some really cool looking maps on his site, as well as other drawings and sketches. I'd like to feebly attempt some myself.
