Typeface by AstralSoda Typeface by AstralSoda
I decided on an update of a couple pieces. School's been keeping me far too preoccupied but luckily also helping me to expand my art skills.

This piece was done for my Typography class: "Typeface"
We had to make a self-portrait entirely out of letter forms in Illustrator- no hand-drawn lines. It kept me up until wee hours in the morning, gave me a hand cramp and made me temporarily insane... but I'm pretty satisfied with how it came out. :D Sadly, I don't remember the font I used.

NO, I did not cheat and draw the eyes. Those are C's, O's, a few I's and parenthesis. Holy heart failure, Batman!

I even entered this piece along with my Alphabet in the Electronic Art Show at school this month. Wish me luck!

UPDATE: This piece won me 2nd place in graphic design at the art show! Yay. :'3
