The first assignment for my Typography class was to make a portrait of an author, incorporate a quote of his/hers, using just letters and type forms. i’m extremely happy with how this came out after working for about 9-10 hours total on it. if you’re a fan of Chuck Palahniuk, i encourage you to zoom in on the image. i’m betting you’ll find at least a dozen or so different quotes from all of his books. The quote i chose was from Diary, and it reads, “We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.” i thought it related to the goal of an artist that is creating work that will impact people’s lives not just now, but throughout time.
