ominous openings

August 30, 2012

Here are a couple of pieces from a series I’m doing in black & white. The idea was to create chapter headers that the sharp reader would discover are both illustrations and chapter numbers. These are generic spooky/mysterious images done for samples. In real life, the subject matter used for the illustrations would actually tie in with the chapter in some way.

This hypothetical book has 10 chapters. Not all the numbers are animals, it just happens that the first two are. I like the beak and feet used as serifs for the number 1. Some of the other numbers are sans serif. Hope there’s no penalty for mixing font styles.

    Creatively clever. I look forward to seeing the other chapter headings. These are quite elegant.
