You know those gorgeous images you find of vintaged flowers, betraying some kind of longing on the part of not just the creator, but whoever posted it? Well, I took some photos in my friend’s garden, and after having a fiddle in Photoshop they reminded me so much of this sort of image, as well as the image below, that I decided to apply my sardonic wit to the photos I took. The only problem was, that I had wanted to use an uppercase sans serif vs script like the creator of the image below had done, but I couldn’t remember who had done it, let alone where on the internet I’d seen it!

I decided to forge ahead and have a play, regardless. It wasn’t until just half an hour ago, many hours after I posted the finished images on flickr and tumblr, that I finally struck upon the images that f-letter created, and I was stunned at how similarly I had picked the typefaces. I think I have a great memory for lines and shapes, but not much else :P
This month has been crazy busy: I’m setting up a business with a friend as well as trying to keep on top of all my commissions and personal art work. It’s definitely wonderful being wanted!
