Look what I found

Looking back over my work from the last year, I came across this little gem.  It was a group project in a day where we had to make a piece in response to a quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet.  This was probably the most fun I have had working with a group of people in a long time!

I'm also reading a really great book at the moment, called 'Just My Type'.  It's described as 'A book about fonts' But it is so much more than that!  It's so readable I can hardly put it down, which is quite odd for me with a non fiction book.


I love this book ^^

'Broken Heart'

We have had to do a project called "Take one Word" so, naturally I took two.
"Broken Heart"
I've been busy printing and deciding which idea to take forward and I decided to use photoshop, again!
Which is crazy.  So here are my initial pieces.  I don't often use photoshop but am slowly coming to realize how useful and quick it can be.  Especially when so many different compositions are running around in my head!




However I would like to do these by hand as I feel that something is lost in electronically processing the words on top.  I think it detracts from the personal nature of the piece and having your heart broken is a personal experience.
I love it for being able to quickly see how a piece could look though!
