The suggester says: ''If possible, it would be nice to see this featured on December 8th, the date of John Lennon's death. Because this piece shows excellent use of text as an art form, commemorating one who spoke to the world with his words and music.''

i love this piece, it may be an old concept but, i don't give a damn.

it is a piece to remember one of the greatest men who has ever graced this planet, and it saddens me that some dA members feel the need to rip the artist to shreds for the use of art style and even the font of the words.

i feel that the artist fully deserves the DD, not just because of the subject material, but because of the sheer time and effort that must have gone into making this wonderful image. a definite fave, and congrats to the artist on the DD.

RIP John Lennon

I had a college class like that involved making shapes into objects or figures out of text -boo. Is it just different layers of colored text in cut out forms for the three shades?
