connor13Send connor13 a message :   we are probably trying to say the same thing, i just think some styles(psychedelic)probably look better with hand done text. but most of the posters i see with the "hand draw text" comment could have just used a more appropriate font or type treatment. of course some are just scribbles with tiny band info(hand drawn or computer). just because you drew a cool picture doesnt mean you'll be able to tweak hand done text to make it fit. i cant hand letter to save my life. but i could probably find a good font that matches. what do i know. not trying to argue with the new "nice" art. you make a valid point.   2003-11-22 09:36:05
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i don't know if you NEED to hand-draw the text, but it would probably help. when you draw your own typography, it ends up being executed in your own stylistic hand. the result is that it fits the rest of the image without clashing.
these pre-designed illustrative type faces (done by other hands) ends up clashing remarkably with your illustration. the result is like having one illustration (the stylized typography) sitting on top of another illustration (your drawing) and they cancel each other out, ar at the very LEAST creates a dichotomy were the mind's eye doesn't know which arena of communication (the typography or the image) it's supposed to be paying attention to in order to understand the message being transfered. if it was YOUR lettering, it would at least BLEND IN.
ideally , what you need here is typography that sits alongside the image and that allows your illustration (which is great) to do all the work for you. it ends up carrying the weight of the piece and let's the typography just be informative.
as it sits the whole thing self-destructs. sometimes we need to realize that we need to just pull back a little.

Michael M. MotorcycleSend Michael M. Motorcycle a message :   Damn Gil. This is so beautiful. Is it screenprinted? If not it should be. I wish you would have hand drawn that text.   2003-11-21 01:06:34
