Guy Handles Pens And Markers Like A Samurai Handles The Sword


I’ve been a fan of Jody Barton’s typographical work for a minute now. The English artist has been popping up in some of my favorite magazines throughout the years (Dazed and Confused, Vice, the Face (RIP), Intersection, WAD to name a few). Once you get a feel for his work there’s no mistaking it. Guy handles pens and markers like a samurai handles the sword. He just put up this video—type as a flowing watercolor. Amazing work.

Also thought I’d share his live drawing, which is set to and inspired by Ian Dury and the Blockheads’ most excellent cut, “Sex n’ Drugs n’ Rock n’ Roll.”
