Description

OLVE & UFCK

I created a simple typeface for this series. I was thinking of Robert Indiana’s famous Love sculpture in Philadelphia, but with considerably more piss. It just occurred to me that I’ve been staring at Robert’s piece since I was an infant. It was recreated as a lamp my parent’s owned, so for me it is the original example of type-as-art. No wonder.

Resist Fire & Cure Wounds

Dungeons & Dragons spells as a recipe for living.
