Graphic designer and engineer Tolga Girgin turns calligraphy typography into a work of three-dimensional art in this series of striking word illustrations. Girgin plays around with turning each of the letters three-dimensional so that the calligraphy literally looks like it's coming to life on the page.
While calligraphy is typically reserved for special occasions and signs, Girgin explores this classic typography art form in this illustration series. The images capture Tolga's technicolor calligraphy letters that have been printed using an authentic calligraphy ink pen. Tolga goes in afterwards with a mechanical pencil and adds detailed shading underneath every letter curve. The effect is quite striking as the shading makes it look like these calligraphy words are leaping off of the page at the viewer as the letters come to life.
