Flickr Feature: Ray Fenwick

I wish there was a larger version of this image available, so you could really see the wonderful genius and humor in it (if you click on it, it gets slightly larger, which helps). I first saw Ray Fenwick's work while looking through some illustrations on flickr one day. Even at thumbnail size, I could tell how cool his lettering was. But, Ray's work is not just about great hand-lettering. It's about observation, pattern, the exquisite line and having a wonderful (and somewhat cynical) sense of humor. I absolutely love it and am always delighted by what Ray posts. My favorite set on his flickr page is a typographic comic called the Hall of Best Knowledge, which is going to be published in early 2008 by Fantagraphics. Yippee!
