EDIT 4 (August 2nd, 2012):
So, this was featured on the 22nd of June over on *quasi-Virtuoso
's journal ([link]
) and I forgot to update this! Thanks a lot! EDIT 8 (June 15, 2011):
This piece was "featured" as the second search result in that typography notice dA sent out yesterday and it couldn't make me happier! My inbox exploded (No, seriously, it literally exploded. So did my computer. And every light in my house. I'm typing this in a dark corner on the shards that used to be my monitor) with comments and favourites and it's amazing! EDIT 7 (April 13, 2011):
So, by searching my name on Google, I found out that this piece was featured in at least three other places that I didn't even know about. One in particular was featured by someone named Carol from Graphix 1 ([link]
) on March 23rd. It makes me so happy that people are featuring my piece, you don't even know.
So, Carol (and anyone else who featured this piece), if you're reading this, I'd like to thank you for featuring my artwork, it means a lot to me! EDIT 6 (March 11, 2011):
I can't believe I didn't make this update until now. Last week (almost two weeks, now) $megturney
asked me if I would like to have this piece featured at South by Southwest (SXSW) this week in Austin, Texas and of course I said yes! I mean, who would turn down such an amazing offer?! My only regret is that I couldn't be there to see it myself.
Thanks again to $megturney
and to anyone else who's responsible for my piece being featured! EDIT 5 (December 12, 2010):
So, I was featured by the lovely folk(s?) here ([link]
) by ~DublinRabbitGirl
. I feel very honoured to be among these people and I would like to thank you in the best way possible (well, I could probably do a lot better than this, but a little excerpt in the description is good, right? Yeah? Cool)!
Thanks again to ~DublinRabbitGirl
! EDIT 4 (September 10, 2010):
I changed the name a bit. My Jimi Hendrix one couldn't fit the words "Typographic Portrait" in the title, so I thought I would make it similar, in a way.
How's that, Two of Us? I wasn't sure if I should use that, or "The Beatles," since I was thinking of doing one of these with all four Beatles...EDIT 3 (August 26, 2010):
I honestly can't believe I have over 200 favourites and close to 2,000 views on this, not to mention the six sales I got on it. It's such a great feeling. Thanks to all those that have viewed this, and an extra big thanks to those who liked it enough to buy it. EDIT 2 (May 21, 2010):
Okay, so, a lot of people have been
'ing this, and it's getting hard to keep track, so... If you favourite this, thanks for much!
Over 500 views and close to 100
s. Thanks everyone!EDIT 1 (March 27, 2010):
Wow, a lot of people really like this one. Thanks!
It's my first deviation to have over 100 views. Part of my Typographic Portrait series!
I was bored again, so I decided to search for high res photographs of The Beatles.
So, eventually I found this one ([link]
), and thought it would be cool to make a typographic portrait.
Their bodies are made up of "The Beatles," John" and "Paul" and the background is made of a biography I found on Sing365.com. [link]
