As Ive been wanting to practice and perfect my typography a lot more, I decided to create another typography illustration, of a quote from Oscar Wilde.
As I started researching some quotes and sayings to illustrate I instantly liked the one that I’m showing you now, ‘True friends stab you in the front’ – a clever and funny quote which packs a punch straight away.
After drawing thumbnails in my sketchbook, I came up with a composition that I was happy with, and drew a final illustration to be scanned into Photoshop. This was a different medium from which I usually work with, but I think I’ll try and produce another typography illustration using gouache and painting, the way I really enjoy!
I’m really interested in typography and hopefully I can transfer this into my Illustrated maps and other later projects.
