Hi, Adam!

Very cool! How big is this? How long did it take you? Tempted to do a WIP? ;)

I do have a couple of suggestions for you, and this could just be my sense of composition (which we all know tends to like stuff a bit, um, cluttered. :D ) I hope you don't mind, I pulled your pic into photoshop to show you... I think a tighter crop, kinda like this, would create a bigger visual impact.

The other thing that caught my attention, is the really strong diagonal dividing the words that pulls my eye right out of the piece. If those really cool *vertical* detail/straight lines intersected it, or were a bit closer in to it, I think it would take care of that. As it is, the horizontal ones it does connect with are too close to the edge of the piece & aren't (at least to my eye) being very good roadblocks. :D

Great job, on this! Was it for another commission?
Looking forward to seeing more!
Tess

Hi Tess, and thanks for your comments. I sure like the sturcture of it all much better when its cropped.
After I had figured out how the words worked together, i pretty much just started to play around and added things....and it all turned out in the end as this, which is actually an 8.5X11.
This one wasnt a commission, this was just a design I wanted to improve on. I like to make things are like an eyeball obsticle course...lol
And just for fun, I think a WIP would be awesome.

I think that it is visual disturbing, and that is not a bad thing, as it is life and death.
The 4 cubes are reminding me of architectural elements, as well as partial musical notes.
The idea could be expanded on.
The center line reads well, as does the graphics below L and above T. The other 2 sections are the ones that I would either expand on or delete.

Sorry it's taken me a bit to get back to this... Been thinking about it. I like the pairings of dichotomies (like life/death). True/false. Yes/no. I *really* like Fiction/fact, but that might be a bit tricky... Sun/Moon might be fun to do, especially if you introduce color...

I'm totally unhelpful. :lol:

Eager to see whatever you want to show!
Tess

Very cool. I like it alot. Do like the closer crop better though. Focuses more on the words and doesn't distract the eye so much.

i agree... the only reason i go extreme is because I dont want the owner to get bored of looking at it...
I find it also commands your attention, and makes you take a moment to enjoy and appreciate it.

I have one for you. The latin phrase "Ancora Imparo" (I am still learning) I've done one myself but couldn't get it to "flow"
