This is beautifully executed! In fact, I'm in a typography class right now, and I have to do some research on a typographic artist that we find interesting, and I'm interested in writing about you and your work. My essays won't get published or anything, but we have to do some typography with info about our artist as well. May I place this image into a "magazine page" that I'm making for class? Again, it won't get published and anyone who reads it will know it's yours. Again, beautiful work, and I really love how he looks troubled, like he has stresses that the people forget about.
