I found this today while visiting typography section jury at La Cambre visual art school (Brussels, Belgium).
Someone told me it is the last year project of a student in graphic communication section. It’s done in the cafetaria.

I don’t know the name of the student, does anyone know? Made by Basile Cuvelier.

Mr. Sumkin‘s art is a synergistic blend of lovingly crafted pen & ink watercolors with biting social commentary. Although his typographical work belies the influence of Gothic, Art Nouveau, Wes Wilson and others, Mr. Sumkin remains deliciously unique. One would be hard pressed to chose between his exquisitely designed type and his fresh style of editorial & advertising illustration. Fortunately, they compliment each other beautifully.”

Thanks to Alex Deforce for the link.
