X is a letter created for the AlphaBattle. I have been working on this illustration style for the past year. Something loose with a rough visual as a change from precision lettering for commercial projects. A lot of the early B/W lettering was uplaoded on letterPLAYGROUND early in 2010.
Now that I have spent a year sketching letters of this style I am starting to think about color and offset layers on a larger scale. This lettering and illustration style will evolve into more complex lettering illustrations and eventually prints.
Though the illustration has a unplanned appearance a lot of preliminary sketching was required to develop the letter shape.
