I was asked to participate in this international competition through my university. Students from several colleges around the world designed Arabic, Greek, Hebrew and Sanskirt letters to compete for votes. I had the pleasure of hand-lettering and reinterpreting the Arabic character Jim. Check out the fights on the website above, and vote for your favorites! My character made it to the second round of Arabic fights, keep checking back on the site if you wish to spare my Jim a vote.
