What is Graphic Design For?: Type and Image- Hair.

I've always been a fan of intricate line drawing, and this design is no exception.
Interesting use of colour to depict the hair, a unique turn on the commonly used black fineliner, and with great tones and shadows created from the thickness of line used.
Also, love the reversed-out type- a method which I really like to use- always makes a piece look slightly more interesting- creating interesting forms of the lines surrounding it.

This style of drawing would work wonderfully in a fanzine or poster- the intricate lines ensure that not too many fussy details are needed elsewhere, yet still maintains interest with the drawn outcome.
Definately need to produce more line drawing and freehand drawing over the summer- a great technique that works wonderfully alongside typography in Graphic Design.
