Singing Praises: Xavier Casalta

Category : Inspiration April 8, 2014

Y’all know I love a good letter. My mom led me to some of Xavier Casalta’s lettering work this weekend, and I’m in awe. Xavier uses the technique of stippling to create stunning letters. Similar to pointillism, the brainchild of post-impressionist, Georges Seurat, stippling creates “big picture” imagery by using tiny dots – spreading dots wider in highlighted areas, and crowding dots closer in shadows. Pointillism is a bit different, in that the artist uses colored dots to create to simulate blended colors – very similar to the way modern printing techniques manipulate color. Anywho, enjoy Xavier’s work and stop by his shop for more lettering goodness!
