The Fascinating Font Created From Leg Hair

Advertisement

Here’s a scenario for you… Let’s say you are attending an art university and the instructor of your design class gives everyone an assignment to create a brand new font that has never been seen before, without the use of a computer. What would you do? Computers and fonts go together like peanut butter and jelly or Mario and Luigi. How would you go about it without using a computer?

Japanese student Mayuko Kanazawa was given this assignment, and she decided to use her friend’s leg. Well, his leg hair to be exact. When I first saw this, my immediate reaction was that it was disgusting. However, after I saw it in the Adidas ad below, which she created as an example, I started to really see the creativity.

What I want to know is how did she manipulate the hair like this to turn it into letters, and how long did it take? I wonder if she had to put some sort of gel or hairspray on the strands of hair to make them twist and turn like she wanted them too. I also wonder if she accidentally ripped out a few pieces in the process. My favorite part of this is that the leg hair is still attached to the leg. It seems like it would have been a lot easier to shave it off first, but she didn’t take the easy way out, instead, she created something really extraordinary and bizarre. Excellent!
