fantôme.

ghost.
or shadow.

one of the last times we went out to have burgers, while waiting i became intrigued by the sign over the counter which simply stated “order here”. it was painted so precisely using a shadow font. only the shadow was painted in black onto a white wall. i kept it in mind as inspiration for a cut.

with the obsession of this month being typography, i had a go at working out the other letters i needed (besides that which i already saw in the words “order here”, ha!). with a bit of online referencing, i worked out the rest. that explains this.

it took some time drafting… and then some for all the cutting (sore index finger joint!!), but i love it. it now welcomes us home each time we open our front door… but now i’m not sure if it’s better on the balcony sliding door??
