Sep 13 Sep 13 Gordoletters Omule Tattoos, Interviews Instagram Omule : Lettering, Calligraphy, Tribal? You have such an unique style. How everything started? Gordoletters : The start is always a tricky thing to define. Where to put the line? What I can tell you is that I always wanted to be an artist and that’s where the abstract started, I was painting and drawing abstract shapes since early times. At the age of 13 I started doing graffiti and that is when I fall in love with letters, but only when I started tattooing, in 2008 and discovering calligraphy,that was the starting point of a natural evolution. Omule : Do you have any kind of creative patterns and routines? Gordoletters : I’ve been on the road for 7 years, I don’t have many routines, but the best way for me to create is to empty my mind as much as possible. I’m not in control, I just let in happen. Omule : Where do you get your inspiration from? Gordoletters : Inspiration, I love this word. Most of people miss use it and I have a hard time to define it. I believe inspiration comes from something that makes you wanna sit and draw and become better, it is not something you see and you wanna do the same, that’s copying. If my statement is true, I get inspired by architecture, I’m a big fan of brutalism, of nature, I love the sea life, I love my friends and the good nights with them. Omule : What are some good resources for learning hand lettering? Gordoletters : Books and practice, there are no short cuts. Omule : Do you have any favorite artists from your industry? Gordoletters : I admire a lot of tattoo artists in the tattoo industry : Christian Nguyen, Delphine Noiztoy, Hanumantra, Gakkin, just to name a few. Omule : Do you have a dream project? Gordoletters : I don’t have one, honestly I don’t think that way. Some people say dreams are important to motivate you. I think you only dream because you’re sleeping. Like Morpheus said to Neo “Stop trying to hit me and hit me”.
