Typography 23 - Jordan. by princepoo Typography 23 - Jordan. by princepoo
We were assigned to write an emulation poem of June Jordan or Mohja Kahf. A poem came out of it, and this came last night.

[Don't just hold my hand. Feel my heartbeat.]

I love how you threw in the extra words and jumbled the meaning of the overused ones. It's amazing. Simply amazing.

The words keep running up and down my spine and when I reach the last lines, it just seems to explode in my mind... WoW
Zayuri Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2004
That's very touching. I like how you enfasize what you want to say and espress. It is very original :clap:
Seizen Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2004
I can't understand the whole meaning because my poor english, but it's awesome, hurts hard. Shocked me, damn... :+fav:

freespace Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2004
Very cool, the choice of lettering brings out some pretty strong emotions. Well done yet again :)
picadili Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2004
powerfull and put together well especially the way the words bleed together
dantejoyce Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2004

I really love the last line. Great job as always.
82deg Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2004
i'm telling you now
i don't love you
so you won't tell me


beautiful work, as always, the minimalism as well :heart:
OminousDream Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2004
I just have to say wow.

You caught the 'I say I don't love you, but I really do' feeling well, at least that's what I get from this, mostly because I'm in that place.

Beautiful piece, really. :3nod:
princepoo Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2004
yes, that's what I was trying to capture.
nathanieljc Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2004
geez...that is quite a thought, quite a view. It is very personal, and though it is not to anybody but yourself I can't help but think about using that to break a relationship with someone. (Ouch. Point taken. Insight gained.)

wonderful, strong, Alive. Welcome to Humanity feeling here.

I pity those that are afraid to live their lives, who are afraid of their humanity, their frailty. Such a fool to think that depression seems to be a friend of mine. A friend I am trying to kill.

And damn if the words [don't just hold my hand, feel my heartbeat], those make me shiver, that is the drop of inspiration for my new dev ID.

That is awesome. I LOVE it.
mysterious-lass Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2004
Yes, I agree with iksela.
The blurty rhythm really does it for me. It's so honest and spontaneous, you know it's gotta be genuine.
I hope this is a fictitious bit of writing, and you're not really having this problem. If you are, I hope you don't show this to him/her. It could be quite heartbreaking.
iksela Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2004
It's odd because when I read this I get the opposite feeling.
The feeling that you are trying to protect yourself, against your heart.
Anyway, love the rythm here.
princepoo Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2004
that's exactly what i was trying to portray :)
inomine Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2004
yes. yes. yes...
dragonorion Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2004
Dang, dude. It's not as good typographically as some of your other pieces, but MAN those words sting.

How much fiction?

revscrj Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2004   General Artist

The blurty fast breath metering and syllabic style are really appropriate to the emotion of it. Even the sudden heavy handed blind/bind rhyme falls in a place to create a bridge and is thus appropriate in feel and application.

Very good m'friend- especially for an assignment angled at imitating another's style!
xadeus Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2004
heyyy cool, haven't seen any typography around, nice to see some, i think you did a very nice job here duuuuude :nod:
muzikkman Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2004  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I like this as a whole but the uneven border is what really brings this piece out. As for the poem....that really isn't my area so I don't know what to say about it :)
Good stuff :nod:
