In his series of typographic illustrations entitled Love Letters, artist and designer Raul Alejandro displays an affinity for detail and romanticism that turns every letter into its own symbol-filled work of art.

Inspiration from classic sailor and traditional tribal tattoo artwork is evident in each of these designs with images such as weapons and flames infusing the letters with a vintage sense of masculinity. This toughness is counterbalanced by beautiful details, including swirling lines and floral patterns interwoven throughout each of the letters. Perfectly combining yin and yang, Alejandro's designs are the embodiment of romanticism with a dangerous edge.

The Love Letters typography series can be incorporated into an intricate tattoo design to represent initials and names of loved ones, or as artwork to be framed and displayed on the wall.
