My Obsession with Alphabets

I must have at least 50 sets of rubber stamp alphabets, many of which I’ve never even used. But I like looking at them and thinking about how I’d like to incorporate them into my work. In a way, the collecting of alphabets is my main hobby. But one day I actually will do something with them. In the meantime, I sublimate by downloading free fonts from the Internet and playing with them in Photoshop.
My friend Betty gave me a book on Ed Ruscha, an American artist who has done many word paintings, and I like the idea of doing this myself and giving it my own spin. So little time, and so many plans…

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I am bookmarking yours...I think we have quite a bit in common! I love alphabets, too. In paring down my rubber stamps, I noticed I kept my alphabets; I just couldn't part with them...I need to start USING them!
