the type is basically just a design element (gasp!) I wanted the text to mirror the flames of her head, both to give it a nice thematic feel but to also draw attention to both the text and her head. I didn't want to fill negative space with flames so i just sort of let it float.
hey joel, a really different one for you here...nice to see you doing differnt things...and yeah i bet in real life the stippling on the dress is crazy-intense looking coz I think Joel's obsessive-compulsive about dots and tiny patterning. not sure what the type is doing.... but it's drawn well
