Humanity for beginners or Menschsein für Anfänger is a response towards the importance of educational books for children. I decided to create an ABC for alien children, to help them understand basic behaviors of the human race in case of contact.

The first step was to invent an alien alphabet, designing uppercase and lowercase characters based on the Latin Alphabet structure. Following the sketching of each letter representative illustration, vectorization, and retouching.
