Typefaces: a while ago, Kelly Hume was asked to provide samples of portraits composed entirely of lettering. Knowing what the client wanted and knowing he could do it, he was without the samples to back him up. An unfortunate situation that happens and the best solution is the one the Kelly endeavored upon: create the samples!
Below is a small but brilliant gallery of famous and infamous people. Kelly precisely and methodically positioned the type to render the tones and shapes of their faces, clothing and backgrounds. Well done Kelly!
