Incredible Calligraphy, Drawn to Look Like It’s 3D

As a graphic designer, I have an EXTREME admiration to those who also appreciate typography and the skill behind it. The art of hand-drawn type – and even drawing on paper – is not something you witness in person as readily as you once did before our digital age.

I photograph miniature dioramas that I construct using primarily wool, food, and random objects from the studio… To re-live the barren highlands I chose poppy seeds, coco powder, coffee, milk, and chocolate cake crumbs to represent the various textures found in this landscape. The cake like volcanic landforms, milky blue lagoons, and edible faux-craters capture the likeness of this area in Iceland.
