Blutch font

I lettered Blotch by Blutch for avant-verlag a while ago. The book, about a bunch of insanely petty and arrogant cartoonists at a fictional Parisian humour magazine in the 1930’s, is really funny and wonderfully drawn, and the German translation is very good, so it was a joy to work with this project.

I learned some new French phrases from this book. My favourite is “Tu vas voir mon cochon!”, “You will see my pig!”, which means something like “I’ll show you!”

Blutch has a very lively handwriting, so it took some effort to not entirely lose that in the digital font. Click the image below to see a sample of it:

    I love his work since back when I first noticed it in 2000. Drawn & Quarterly had it in Volum4 where my first story came out.
    It was fun that his girlfriend was the PR person who took care of me in Paris.
