Loboarches

Creator at FontStruct in 2009 of Lobo, and Bat Country, while studying at UWE in Bristol, UK. Bat Country is as an aweseome blotchy hand-printed face, in the style of Treefrog. He explains: I made this for my UWE [note: University of Western England] graphic design first year project "communicating with words". I created this inspired by influences from Ralph Steadman and Jackson Pollock using the concept of inconsistency and randomized mark making with ink. The name is derived from a quote from the book "fear and loathing in Las Vegas". I designed it by firstly creating the text with a pot of ink and the back side of a Biro pen, then from that I drew them by hand onto A4 sheets of graph paper limitating each line to only 4 given angles, then finally transfering that onto FontStruct, wich took roughly 30-40 minutes per letter.
