Literal Alphabet: Playing with Words and Images

Looking back on this year’s self-imposed creative projects (more like whimsies) I thought I’d better archive a few. The following is what I called my “Literal Alphabet” and it all started with David Bowie’s death. Hearing “Bowie” all the time, I began to see literal letter Es with bows on them! After that first doodle, I decided to challenge myself to do the entire alphabet. Some have turned out to be favourites, such as “Y-Knot” and “M-Bark”, and others are a bit of a stretch (R and V in particular). As usual, I went with my first attempt. It was a hoot playing with puns as well as metaphoric imagery. Perhaps the naughtiest is “High T”… Projects like this always get my mind open to thinking in different ways, and I think it might be an interesting exercise at a creativity workshop.
