Hand Lettering by Sean McCabe

Published Nov 14, 2012

Beautiful work by hand lettering artist and type designer Sean McCabe.

“As a kid I thought I was pretty strange. I always found myself drawing letter forms throughout middle school and high school. My homework was littered with typographic illustrations. The artistic friends I had all seemed to draw cartoons, or paint still life, but for some odd reason I was drawn to letters. I just really enjoyed hand drawn lettering.

In general, most people see words and read sentences to derive meaning. I saw letters as beautiful as shapes and curves with forms full of beauty. It wasn’t until years later that I discovered that I had a love for what was known as ‘typography’. What a feeling of relief and excitement all at once! I discovered that not only was I not some strange person with a deranged affection, but that there were also thousands of others who shared the same love for type. The internet has a unique ability for making one feel less weird.”
