Developmental Commentary

Tigers are fierce carnivores. They kill and eat anything as small as a rabbit and as large as an adult elephant. Their choice killing techniques are tearing out the throat or severing the spinal cord. I saw the tiger’s ferociousness as an opportunity for some wild mark making. I decided again to use the brush and India ink. I did a lot of fast paced swipes of the brush to create the letterforms. After dozens of tries I picked out what I felt to be the perfect specimen. The type is both powerfully thick and also extremely intimidating due to its blood-like appearance and sharp edges. I left almost all of the overspray and brush marks to give it that stone cold carnivorous feel.
