My work involves the use of vinyl letters, which can be acquired at any office supply store. These stick-on-letters are generally used for making signs. Vinyl letters come in a variety of sizes, and colors. These letters are used to attach ownership to an object, such as a mail box or a car. All signs act as a standardized form of perception that everyone can agree on.
I found that by using the various sizes and colors of vinyl, I could create an assortment of cartoon symbols. These symbols take on numerous forms, such monsters, birds, rockets, and machines. Hermann Hesse once said “the letter freed from any duties, is a shape that is perfectly familiar and perfectly new.” I feel this quote applies to my characters since there is something reminiscent of the cartoons I grew up with as a kid.
