Can't Escape - Typographic Vector Artwork & Poetry by Lauren Thompson
----------
"Hard as I try
to breech
I can't escape
my own reach"
---------
The wording is from a poem I wrote when I was 17 or 18. I have wanted to illustrate that phrase for a long time, so here it is. I hope you likes! I would love your feedback so please do comment! Thanks! Below is the full poem from which the phase originates.

"Can't Escape"
© Lauren Ruth Thompson

My arms are not a part of me
only something that I cannot free
No matter how hard I try to breach
I can't escape my own reach
---------
I used my font Sachiko to make this illustration [link]
