The typographic soup of Fiodor Sumkin October 31, 2012 – Tags: , ,

Whose gonna eat my soup?

Illustrator Fiodor Sumkin clearly demonstrates a strong background in typography and graphic design. The piece above was inspired by the Gnarls Barkley’s (think Cee-Lo) song  “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul.”

The blue-colored wood type font that creates the reading material which accompanies each image of the woman presents a strong, powerful contrast to the surrounding more classic calligraphy. 

The more I look at it the cooler it gets.
Sumkin also is responsible for this typographic pig that appeared in Cooking Light magazine.
