My Personal Art

For the love of type! I have always enjoyed working and designing with typography. For me it’s one of the most rewarding aspects of working in graphic design. I have also enjoyed photography and the opportunity it provides to present the ordinary in extraordinary ways. In late 2006, I was fortunate enough to spend some time vacationing in the southwest area of the country where I began photographing some of the iconic signs along route 66. Intrigued with the one-of-a-kind use of letter forms, I amassed quite a collection of these iconic characters. Some time afterwards, in my travels around the Hartford area, I began to notice some of our own unique signs and type characters. Then the idea struck me. Wouldn’t it be a great visual brain teaser if I could spell out the name of an area town, using photographs of one-of-a-kind iconic type characters found only in that town? That’s how Town Characters™ was born.
