Look closer, it’s not just pencil on white paper. Yes, these intricate images are indeed made up of thousands of hyphens, parentheses, letters, numerals, and other symbols.

How does she do it? Watch the sweet video below to see the type-artist creating images from her fingertips. It will make you want to experiment with that ol’ Remington on your shelf. In a recent British news brief, Keira said that it took her about six years of practice to perfect her work.
Have you tried anything like this? Let us know what you think about Kiera’s work, and if you too produce art out of interesting mediums.

Our type indeed! Gorgeous art, gorgeous lady, and gorgeous style. It would be cool if Keira agreed to do a guest blog of her fav. MC items.
that’s incredible! i’ve seen a lot of her stuff floating around tumblr recently!
So cool! What an original medium. As if I needed another excuse to crave a typewriter…
