SPOTLIGHT: Job Wouters (a.k.a. Letman)

Job Wouters is a designer from The Netherlands who loves letters, illustrates with letters, and is obviously having a great time doing it.  Here's a description of the artist by an artist friend of his...

He is cuckoo about letters, he loves them, so far is certain. He is also one of those fellows who can read a chunky novel in a couple of hours, but that's a different story. His designs are transparent, leaving room to breathe. Them letters got things to say, they are so clear it tickles your eye and make you blink. What is this colourful craft? Letman's letters are curious. His handmade style fits the boundaries of typography like a universe on itself by lashing out to illustration, grafitti and graphic design. Letters are free entities to him. They are clear and cunning. Together they stand strong.

p.s. Make sure to check out the video at the end of this post, featuring him and his son making letters.  Wish I'd thought to do it.  Guess I still can.
