I really like how you've combined the words in different fonts and type styles with the imagery in this piece. It adds a wonderful art poster quality!

Thanks, Suzanne!  I played around with different fonts in Photoshop before drawing them in, by scanning in the portrait and overlaying the fonts on top and experimenting with different positioning.  I am a font addict!

I totally get being addicted to fonts. We share this one! Lovely way to make good use of it.

We could start a font addicts club.  I have over 1000 fonts on this computer and over 5000 on my laptop back in Florida.  I should probably start weeding through them and culling out the ones I'll never use!

Hi, Jeff here -- the piece is very good -- I too like to use words -- words and art together are magical

Thanks, Jeff!

Grace, it takes forever for me to look through all my fonts too. I sometimes use a program called The Font Thing which allows me to see them fairly easily, so I can compare them before deciding which one(s) to use.  I really do need to get rid of the ones I don't use, though!

I use Adobe Type Manager. It is an excellent font archive system.
