Th nk ng by LornaPhone September 1, 2012December 18, 2012 I’m integrating typography into my drawing. I’m also narrating my actions. These words make up my hair.

Rather, the words make up some of my hair
That’s excellent!! Exactly what I meant!
Absolutely beautiful ! Love it!
Absolutely love your style! You’re such a creative genius! 😀
This is a really cool concept. Would love to have something like this on my wall.
What an interesting approach – I really like this one a lot.
beautiful, interesting — I just love it !
i love this.
And now, in some small way, my comments are p[art] of [you]r art.
Yes! That’s amazing!
Your words serve the function of “hairration!”
You’re the “hairrator!”
Also, wow this is really incredible!!!
Wow, I love these. They look incredible. I’m going to read back into your blog now but in case you don’t answer this in previous posts: How do you do the topography effect? I’m unskilled in all but the most rudimentary image-editing programs, but stuff like this makes me want to quicken my learning pace.
Thank you for your interest! I use Photoshop. It took me a few drafts to get the shape the way I wanted. I added the typography after I finished the drawing. First, I decided what I wanted to say. Second, I added a layer ontop of the finished drawing. Third, I added new layers and made the mess up layers invisible untill I got the text how I wanted. I actually drew ontop of an outline of the hair and then made that invisible for the final image, so the hair fits in an outline that you can’t see. Does that make sense? Since it was my first time with this method, I’m still figuring out what it is I have done/am doing.
It´s very very very nice!
Thanks for responding! I’ll have to mess around with that. I have been playing with typography in sculpture and in drawing, and I’ve gotten pretty good at freehanding Times New Roman (forwards and backwards and in various states of distortion, even!). In my above comment I was asking about the tOpography effect, and maybe that’s not the right term, but the lines that make the drawing look like an elevation map or a paint-by-numbers piece. Did you create those lines yourself or does Photoshop have a tool for that? Thanks for answering my questions, and feel free to tell me to bugger off if I’m bothering you.
Text in wacom/tablet?
hp tablet 🙂
then experienced tab writer, you are.
why thank you
why, because texts are fit on the face shape, a good art, and just.
Love love love this!
this reminds me of lucid art therapy excercises.. and awesome art!
Nice! I also try to combine “typography” (though painted) into my paintings. Reading is every bit as visual as imagery, I believe.
Thank you for following my blog! You are very talented, love your illustrations.
Just popped in to take a look at your blog. And I’ve discovered I really DO like you[r art]!! Very cool stuff. Will follow along for more of your artistic awesomeness. 😀
