A pangram is a sentence that uses every letter of the alphabet at least once.

Pangrams are often used to by designer's to display their new typefaces or fonts, and by gradeschool students forced to practicing the fine art of touch typing.


An example of a pangram is “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”

When translated into "color alphabet" text it looks like this:


The following are a series of encaustic works that use a pangram within each of the panels. The works are composed of traditional encaustic medium (bees wax and dimar varnish and pigment, vinyl rub-on lettering, and in some cases, 16mm film..

The objective of the work is to tie together the notion of fontography in contemporary layout design with the use of colors that has specific meaning, much in the same vain that Rem Koolhass used European flag colors to redesign a version of the EU flag.

These works have also allowed me the freedom to experiment with new techniques and ideas that are not normally part of the encaustic painting practice, and of course, show off my color typeface :)
