Illustrator Injects Iconic Symbols Into Famous People’s Names

There’s a lot to be said for a good signature. It’s a uniquely scribbled line which separates you from every other person in the world with your name.
 
This counts double for notable individuals, whose identity means it’s even less likely they’d get away with an indecipherable squiggle.
 
Which brings us to this striking collection of clever illustrations, depicting the ways in which famous people might have decided to add an even more personal touch to their respective signatures.
 
Blink and you’ll miss them, stare intensely and you’ll love them even more - the works of Swedish artist Patrik Svensson are a flurry of eye-catching brilliance: from Coco Chanel’s cursive needle and thread to Charlie Chaplin’s underlining cane, plenty of real life figures come in for the special treatment, but arguably the best ones are the fictional choices.
 
Why we can only imagine what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would think of the special autograph created for his pipe-favouring sleuth Sherlock Holmes. Or indeed how J. M. Barrie would have reacted to the subtle brilliance of Peter Pan’s own handiwork.
 
And if this were the norm, autograph hunters would be making a killing on eBay right now.
