I was looking around for an idea for my next art project, and I came accross your Typography 7 - Life. It inspired me to work with typography, and after looking around some more, I decided to make a self-portrait using song lyrics. Then I came look more around your work, and I found this - much like what I want to do myself, and absolutely touching. Wonderful.
i was just kinda scrolling up and down, trying to think of something beautiful to say . couldn't think of anything, i had lots of ideas though
" a warm in a cold morning"
" a splash of pure passion on "
" a heart not afraid of being examined openly"
i thought, just say something! anything! nope.
how can i compare this to anything when i've never experienced anything like this.
no way. no how.
every time you submit something, i feel so incomplete because everything seems so new to me.
you're so open about your feelings, it's unbelievable.
I don't think I've ever viewed this, how absurd! Ohh it makes me what to work on typography so badly, and I just sang about 15 different, great songs over the course of the few minutes viewing this. You're wonderful!
this is so beautiful, i'm going to cry.
reminds me of work i *used* to do in my classes.
i now work in a copy shop, where god forbid you use an unusual font on a document, or tinker with the typograthy, because the original sucks...... i digress.
so.... i envy you, friend.
Three words - Oh. My. God. I love it SO much and it's my new wallpaper. Thank you for posting, I know most of these songs the ones that touch me, I'll do my damndest to find them too. Oooh, thank you again. ^^
dude, your typography skills rock!
the way the text is amongst the waves of red (music/sound waves?)
then you got that simple character chillin to some tunes!
i came across an interesting quote today from an the artist David Byrne:
"On the other hand, music can inspire love, religious ecstasy, cathartic release, social bonding and a glimpse of another dimension. A sense that there is another time, another space and another, better, universe. It can heal a broken heart, offer a shoulder to cry on and a friend when no one else understands. There are times when you want to be transported, to get your mind around some stuff it never encountered before."
it came out of an article called "I Hate World Music" from the New York Times.
the rest of the article is quite fascinating and mr byrne makes a lot of good points about classifying music. you can find it here [link]
just click on the i hate world music icon.
In your enthusiasm, I think you may have forgotten to give us a little breathing space, but the idea is very cool and the colors are, of course, perfect. I love the little dude with the headphones on in the corner.
