Form and Content

This composition I feel is the best out of the form and content compositions I have blogged about.  One word is used through out the whole image.  The word is used in different tints, sizes, and direction.  The word Zebra is used instead of lines.    When looked at from a distance, the viewer can’t tell that all the lines are made from type.  Detail as little as the eyelashes are formed by using type.  The shadows under the mouth and around the neck area are shown through text as well.  Having text be the only source of making lines and shadows makes this piece really strong.  I think its very creative and a strong composition.  The small type and detail shown in the forehead of the zebra create depth and interest.  The different size of fonts creates a strong sense of three-dimensional shape.   I wouldn’t change anything in this piece.  I don’t know what else can be done with this composition to make it stronger.
