Type Happy/ GQ Style

This drippy typeface makes me think of Jackson Pollock, the manly man of abstract expressionist painting.  It's quite fitting, as the letters were commissioned by GQ Magazine, the manly-chic dude's glossy.  Even though they were designed with the rougher gender in mind, I like!  There is something nice about the liquidity... It takes me back to elementary days, painting abstractly by blowing watery tempera around with a straw.  Remember that project?
