Lunchtime blogging: The work of Jon Contino
I have lately been obsessed with browsing the work of illustrators, specifically those that combine illustration and typography into awesomeness. I wish I had more of a natural talent for such things, but since it’s not entirely there, I just admire the work of others hoping their talent will rub off (side note, I have picked up the book Thinking with Type – have any reading suggestions? Let me know). Browsing through some of the blogs I like to check a few times a week, I came across the hand lettering and illustration work of Jon Contino (via Beautiful Type). His work is fabulous! I also love how the site is laid out in an easy to browse manner. Below, a few illustrations that I really loved and that might inspire you to create something wonderful!
