Reading through the August issue of HOW (one of my favorite graphic design magazines) I came across an article featuring an amazing artist. The artist is illustrator Linzie Hunter. Instead of trashing all of the spam email she gets, she chooses to be creative with it. She makes art.
According to HOW, her hand-lettered spam one-liners began as a playful exercise to get away from her computer illustration and get back into paint and ink. In no time, this experiment went from the lab to commercial success. Although spam can be quite crude, some of these one-liners almost take on a crafty, folk-art quality through her illustrations.
She has a book being published this fall.beautiful design, design and tagged art, folk art, hand-lettering, linzie hunter, spam email. Bookmark the permalink.
