Thank you so much Florian!
It would be exceptionally wonderful, if it was possible to create a font like in his covers from Crazy Cowboys or Crazy, Crazy! I loved his font so incredibly much as child that it became the first one I learned and added to my repertoire. Nowadays I am looking for a digital version as display font.
Thank you for your post
Thanks for your comment! I’m not aware of a font that’s based on Mordillo’s lettering. Technically, it would definitely be possible to create one that emulates its look. One would need to look into the legal aspects, especially if it’s intended as a commercial product advertised with reference to the artist. However, the range of applications is probably somewhat limited, and much of the appeal of the cover designs comes from the colorfulness and the 3D effect via the shading/gradients.
Among existing fonts, the one that probably comes closest is Blow Up by Hannes von Döhren.
