Fantasy Song – Earth, Wind & Fire T-Shirt Design

Posted in Dark Designs, Dark Illustrations, Dark Themes with tags , , , , , on March 5, 2012 by darkvotum

The Fantasy song (1978) is a pre-Michael Jackson pop song that deserves a great artistic design. In my opinion, it is the best musical choral composition of the XX Century.

“Fantasy” is a single by Earth, Wind & Fire from their album All ‘N All, released as a single in 1978. The selection was written and composed by Maurice White, Verdine White, and Eddie del Barrio, and it was only finally finished after Maurice White saw the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind and gained inspiration from the film.

The song has two striking poetic paragraphs that really prevail in a dream world of good and evil. I include them here.

” Every thought is a dream
Rushing by in a stream
Bringing life to the kingdom of doing…

You will find other kind
That has been in search of you
Many lives has brought you to
Recognize, it’s your life now in review.”

In addition, it has an intriguing sentence that is almost undecipherable but I’m sure it has the meaning of time and infinity…”Until the twelfth of never.”

My Fantasy dark design, with customized vintage typography, is available for your consideration in this section of the store, with an amazing choice of background colors and sizes for your casual and daily wear and parties.

Labyrinth’s Creature – Dark Fantasy Comics Design

Posted in Dark Designs, Dark Fonts with tags , , , , on August 8, 2011 by darkvotum

In the Spanish movie, Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), directed by Guillermo del Toro and winner of three Academy Awards, there are some beautiful fantasy characters with CGI special effects.

One of these fantasy characters, and probably the most important is the pan, who creates a dark mythology of a young princess that deals with a mysterious labyrinth and a ferocious battle between Good and Evil. The film happens in a very interesting era of Spain during the Franco dictator and revolutionary insurgency.

My design version is a little more sophisticated as I made a female mythological pan so you can order the t-shirt in the Fantasy section in white and dark backgrounds.  I added my Barathion fantasy font to make a very special print. Ideal for family, children and friends. Enjoy this unique fantasy design. It is an eye-catching tee!

Introducing White House VS Font – American Government Calligraphy For Invitations

Posted in Dark Fonts with tags , , , on March 1, 2011 by darkvotum

It is interesting that during President Reagan’s administration he has been the only American president able to send me a nice card. Maybe it is a California thing!

In Reagan’s memory, I designed this commercial calligraphic font based on the official White House invitation card. I don’t know who was the Chief Calligrapher of the White House at that time but the font is a consuming task in the kerning side.

Below is the character alphabet and a White House invitation during the Reagan years using this unique font, which is simple but very elegant as opposed to the French Shelley Allegro – alike font the White House prefers now with pompous thrills for state dinner invitations. If you want to license this font contact darkvotum at gmail. Thanks.

Tijuana Style VS Font – Interesting Mexican Typography For Western Hotels Signs

Posted in Dark Fonts with tags , , , on February 22, 2011 by darkvotum

The actual trend in Mexican typography is to evolve into rounded shapes if you haven’t noticed in the latest typography magazines. We are converting squared-serif typos into rounded-serif typos.

Tijuana Style VS is a commercial font that takes advantage of the most recent innovations and it is aimed to hotels and tourism promotion to capture the already saturated attention of the consumer. A great and versatile font for multiple display events as well.

The font is available by purchasing a license. Here are some examples of this beautiful font in my client collection including a neon text display effect of the font. I love the Noir and ethereal effect that the font creates, characteristic of black and white films. For further inquiries, contact darkvotum at gmail.

Bestia Font – Exotic Tattoo Font | Shadow of the Beast Typography

Posted in Dark Fonts with tags , , , on February 18, 2011 by darkvotum

I was looking at some tattoos websites and I was dissapointed with the style of the fonts they are offering to their fans. Some of the fonts really look too funny to stamp on skin forever.

With that in mind, I went back to Roger Dean’s designs of the Shadow of the Beast (Amiga) and created a complete uppercase map of the glyphs. Maybe this typeface, in my own opinion, it is worthy to tattoo fans and their admirers.

I called the font Bestia (Beast in English) and it is a more modern semi-gothic design than the popular English blackletters, which I refuse to use in contemporary designs. I think they are obsolete for the new young generations and make them look old. In contrast, what is great about this font is that it is designed for big letters and interesting ligatures that make every word unique, like a great tattoo should look like.

Anyway, the high-resolution font is available for purchase with its license should you want to sport in your naked body something cool and exotic. Contact darkvotum at gmail.
