Oh I don't mind, I'm very flattered, by all means do so. Is the resolution high enough for a good size print? I can rescan it and re-upload it at a higher dpi, if you want. :handshake:

Well, you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs -
sometimes you can't make art without spilling tea!

this is swell.

a small thing that disturbs me in it are the glued on parts in the center ... but still really great! chapeau.

thanks very much, kat - including mentioning the center. when i scanned it before adding those, it seemed to need something for a visual pop at just that point, and a bit of glued-on text was the subtlest thing i could find. it might have worked without it - i decided to go ahead. chapeau much appreciated :aww:

this is so interesting. such a great look to it and i like how there some words which are almost in between states, like they're ghosts or something, whispers

thanks very much, that's an effect i like a lot too. these pieces are a bit unpredictable, this one worked out pretty well.

I love how faded the type is. Was it deliberate?
Reply
:iconrichardleach:
RichardLeach Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010   Traditional Artist
Yes, it starts out as "normal" type, I get this effect by applying cellophane tape and peeling it off the page. If there's a word I want to keep I try to work around it. Other than that I don't try to remove ink completely evenly, I like some randomness.

Damn.
I felt like I was losing all the balls I was juggling looking at this.
Someone stuck a needle in my leg while everything was balanced and in swing,
and then suddenly, pupils dilated,
things went numb,
my legs stopped listening to me,
hands did whatever they could to stay in motion whether it helped or not..
and then the mind went blank.
Body hung erect, just staring off.

It was like that.

I always hope I'm ADDING to
the productive situation when I start speaking my mind.

Normally I regret what I say because I sound crazy
and just can't seem to get my words together.

I appreciate your comment, so much. :heart:
