Enter Andreas Xenoulis’ TypoCreatures realm of demons
“This is a type illustration project of numerous legendary demons that appear in religion, theology, Christian demonology and mythology” writes Corn Studio’s Andreas Xenoulis of his new TypoCreatures project.
“Inspired by Christian demonology and the demons’ characteristics I illustrated eight demons/creatures just by using type. Considering letters as shapes each illustration was structured one by one with the usage of Pirate Ship font. The typographic illustration experiments reflect the appearance of each demon according to how they are described and depicted on books such as The Lesser Key of Solomon (also known as Clavicula Salomonis Regis or Lemegeton, an anonymous grimoire or spell book on demonology), Dictionnaire Infernal by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy and on paintings of various anonymous or known painters combined with the designers’ fantasy” comments Xenoulis.
