Now, due to their rather cheeky personalities, this alphabet may not be to everyone’s taste but I think it’s no bad thing to try and keep things light-hearted occasionally. It’s all too easy in these libellous and blame-seeking times to get over sensitive about things and to lose perspective. It’s understandable that people are delicate and take things personally especially when the world is in such a hurry. One can get lost in the tunnel-vision of concentration that our lives require so it’s important to remind ourselves that life is serious but is also meant to be fun. And these are fun. Cheeky, in bright colours with simple drawings, this limited edition alphabet series by Brooklyn-based illustrator and artist, Mark McGinnis, will no doubt produce a favourite in there for everyone (possibly, I hope). Complete with irreverent humour, these will surely have you giggling each time you see them and that’s got to be a good thing. Throw out the over-cautious political-correctness, and just enjoy the charming good-natured humour that these posters bring to the table (wall), shall we?
