Krall does bodaceous typographic hyperbole for all kinds of delicious dawgs, burgers, and sandwiches, but other than just honouring sandwiches —one of humankind’s highest achievements—  I love Krall for his other talents such as his gnarly and visceral John K-esque depictions of food that would otherwise be gross, but somehow come across with a cartoonish deliciousness. 

If you know me, you’ll know I’m a sucker for process photos, and Krall comes good with a slew of pictures walking us through each and every one of his designs.


My first thought when I saw it, (other than “Woah, that’s cool”) was, “Hey, this reminds me of Lucky Peach” and rightly so, as I found out he did the typography for their most recent issue.


But serving up bold bolschy Americana is just Krall’s bread and butter, merely a means to an end; he is also a remarkably talented illustrator in the vein of Jon Burgerman or Andy Rementer.



So concludes my love-letter to Hawk Krall, his most recent work is here, and if you’ll excuse the pun, he hawks his wares here.

Lemon out.
