typographic portrait 1: An Insomniac

2016-01-25 00.14.50
My original calligraphy.


Don’t we all never get enough of it?

How hectic our lives are as ADM students.

Compounded with the fact that I am an unpredictable insomniac.

I legit am afraid that I am unable to sleep and thus be unable to function the next day.

It’s so frustrating.


sorry I was ranting.

Above ^ are textures that I’ve created with an application, and I tried overlaying it with my calligraphy as well as stock images from the interwebs. (The fancy bed and the sleeping pills).

I like to play with trippy colours so I tried several variations of colour but I decided that the monochrome was best for the sleeping pills image.

type3 bed neonMore variations^

Untitled-1I created the pattern above from an image of my own calligraphy and a pattern creating application and honestly didn’t expect it to be so gorgeous.


type4Voila. Thanks
