Typography Geek Art Spells Out Images

Attending conventions means finding new artists and illustrations, and I often come home with a stack of business cards for creators. I get comfy with my laptop and a beverage and look through DeviantArt accounts and Etsy shops and Tumblrs and see who I need to follow and keep on my list. I came across Scott W. Smith's work at MegaCon in Orlando (I think), and though he has some cool minimalist character posters, his typography art is what made me do a double take.

He takes quotes from franchises like Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and Star Wars and turns the letters and words into striking prints. They're like the fanciest word clouds ever. He not only creates symbols with the quotes, he includes characters, too. Here are a few of my favorite designs:






You can buy Smith's prints from Skahfee Studios. They're 11" x 17" and $30. Yes, they would make great gifts.
