Illustrated Type: Letters Brought to Life by Eika

Eibatova Karina, or Eika, a designer and illustrator from Moscow, created this Life in the Alphabet Series. Her illustrations are ridiculously detailed and fantastical. Her project description, further below, elaborates on the idea and goal of breathing life into the letters.

Karina says: The idea of the project is to represent a letter in a natural form and appearance. Like something alive has turned into a letter and stood still. In some letters it's possible to find symbolism, others are just an abstract form. In the alphabet you can find only one human - a woman in space. And one unreal creature - a dragon, also a very symbolical sign.
