An Illustrator Created an Alphabet Inspired by His Childhood Cartoons, and We Adore the Result
Since he was a child, Tadeo Soriano had a passion for drawing. Then the curiosity to know more about 3D illustrations arose, and by a stroke of luck or fate, he ended up doing what he loves the most. For him, being an illustrator is more than just a job, it’s also a hobby and a dream come true. His most recent project consisted of making an alphabet as part of the 36 Days of Type challenge, a call for artists to create their own versions of the letters and numbers of the Latin alphabet. Tadeo chose to use animated characters from the cartoons that he loved during his childhood as inspiration.
Bright Side immediately fell in love with this artist’s work. That’s why we’ve compiled a few images that show just how talented Tadeo is. We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did! We bet you’ll go straight back to your childhood when looking at these character-inspired alphabet letters. And at the end of the article, you’ll find a cool mathematical bonus.
