Illustrative Typography: Fungi

  • Using illustrative type, I captured the colors and patterns seen in different fungi. I love the organic lines found in nature, and had a lot of fun replicating and adapting them for this project.
     
    I started with graphite to create the linework and then colored the piece digitally, keeping the paper texture from the original line drawing.
