"HOBO FONT" created by Adam Hilborn

This is a font I made while conjuring my last show "Homeward Bound" at the barbershop gallery. It evolved from a recent intense study of 'cholo' writing created by latino gang members. You can see some similarities in my design.

HOMEWARD BOUND stop motion. A film by Alexi Parizeau.

Over the course of two days in july Alexi Parizeau captured the process of Adam Hilborn's first solo show "HOMEWARD BOUND" at the Barbershop Gallery. The camera was capturing images every 3 seconds
with a Canon 5D Mk2 and 24mm 1.4F lens, tethered to a laptop.

The first night was a special invitation "Dinner with the Artist". The Dinner was prepared by Justine and Sara Wood of Les Louises. Friends and family we're asked to attend the private viewing. (please see previous blog "pre-viewing dinner" for more details)

The following evening "HOMEWARD BOUND" was open to the public.

This is how it went...
