It seems I find a new type of art form each week while perusing the Web, and each time I’m blown away by the creativity that these pieces contain. This week I came across a Typography piece (using type to create images, or something like that) of the Dark Lord of the Sith, which was created by using some of his more infamous movie quotes. Essentially, it’s a portrait of Vader created out of word phrases. How the f*ck does an artist even come up with this technique? Never have a sat down and imagined that I could create a piece of art using a freaking keyboard and some quotes! I guess that’s why I’m about as artistic as a 1 year-old learning how to mark up Mommy and Daddy’s freshly painted walls.
I just don’t have the vision for this kind of stuff, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate it. I’d say art in general and the artists that create it have always fascinated me, but alas, I was never blessed with those skills, so I’m left to blogging about geeky sh*t to a small audience of devoted fans. Wah right? Well, maybe if I could start coming up with some art like the Vader typography piece below more geeks would recognize my awesomeness, but for now I can only wonder at the real artists of the world. You’ve just realized that there’s always someone more creative than you…
Keyboard, I’m Your Father! No Wait, You’re My Creator!
