Environmentally Friendly Graffiti (masking tape graffiti)

July 15, 2007 at 7:21 pm 3 comments

I saw an interesting piece of graffiti the other day. For the lettering boys like myself this is a pretty cool type (for others it’s probably the most boring stuff they’ve seen).

This photo doesn’t really show the piece well though so let me explain. The text LEDEUX that you see here is actually written with masking tape. Yes the type which painters use to cover windows etc.

The serifs on the fonts are really well done with perfectly cut rounded corners and all.

It’s a nice piece of lettering. And it’s even nicer when you look up close and see it’s actually masking tape.

Truly, environmentally friendly graffiti. The funny thing is it could be removed by anyone since it is just tape, yet nobody takes it off.

 

Enjoy.
