Back when I was in high school I did lettering on this comic I was working on called the Four Horsemen. It was an AWFUL story that basically ripped off Batman and all sorts of other stories I was watching and reading at the time but the title page had this wicked lettering style to it that really wowed everyone that saw it. I think I still have the book but if I do it’s buried someplace at my parents’ place.
So, in a slight fit of nostalgia and as a way to give my painting hands a break this past week or two I sketched these pencils for a set of horrible monster letters. Some of these were done on lunch breaks at work but all were done with the idea of inking and coloring them in loose nasty watercolors some time soon.
Some of these have a theme, like B for bones and D for death and of course, Z for zombie. Most of these images are simply meant to be nasty, monstrous and hides things. (And just wait till I paint them.)
