For the past two years, Lex Wilson has been drawing 3D typography that jumps off the page. Each of his words embodies the idea that they spell out, revealing clever metaphors and word-play to those who look close enough at his work. The Nottingham, England based artist creates each of his hand drawn works in "stolen time" between working at his paying job. He shares videos on his Behance page detailing the creative process that goes into each word's creation.
Here is some of his work below:
"That Sinking Feeling"
"Go With the Flow"
Here's a "speed drawing" video of his process of drawing "How Crude": www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRMcTZRLXmU
