“Those are a few of my favorite things …”

17 years ago, February 21, 2005

I wish you would have used your own handwriting for the typeface…it would have seemed much more personal.

The font seems to say “illuminated manuscript” rather than “ipod”.


Yeah I agree, there’s also something of the Gangsta about it. (Which may be appropriate to you I suppose, who knows, but it definatley says something specific which is less or more applicable to each of the things listed)

Perhaps the type could have shown a little more movement as the face and mouth is really lovely and implies a lot of energy. If the words are being flung out of the mouth, I’d love to see what happens when they hit the right screen edge…

Nice start!



You’re both absolutely right about the writing. I originally intended the words to be off my own hand, but then I did it like this to see the effect and stuck with it, so that’s actually quite funny …

Shirohagen sees a gangsta feel to it … well, I wanted it to be ruff and have that photo copy look, but at the same time soft. That’s why there’s hardly any movement to it. Pretend that the words are soap bubbles falling out of my mouth … light as snow … but they’ll F you up, if you touch ‘em.

Any way, thanks for your opinions. — Y’all come back now, ya hear!?

And thanks for not mentioning my misspelling of Converse ;-D


Totally missed it mate! How did you do the face? It’s a really nice technique.



That was pretty easy … “Vertical grain” in PhotoShop.


Of course, and there was me thinking you’d got the charcoals out!



I like the look of the cheek pressed against the photocopier glass. And I like the subtle shadows that still give some detail and depth to the face.

I’m not such a fan of the words, though. They’re too solid and dark so they don’t fit in with the rest of the image. Mayhap they need a bit of that vertical grain, too.
