Green IS the new black

I was trying out type in an illustration for this one. Just messing around really. It seems to me any product being sold to the general public is eco friendly or 'green' which is great to a degree, but sometimes it's seems like it's just said for the sake of the sale, with no actual proof of how it is eco friendly or green-er. This piece in no way shows any of that but just of the line 'green is the new black' - literally.

Some good parts and some not so good parts, over all fun to do in a few hours.

hey jos, how do you get this texture? It looks like a print through a press.

Hey Heather!

Nope, just a silk screen. Pretty easy and looks good!

Hope you're well, thanks for checking my stuff out!

dear josiah gordon

this is stupendous. you and your type always excite me in ways nothing else can.

well, it might be up there with getting chased by a dog, but i digress...

i LOVE the distressed look of the "black" type, and the splayed out-ness of it also.

take care!

Thanks Vicki! I'm glad my type treatment is on some level as adventurous as getting chased by a dog!!

Hope you're well, I've been working on a house the past few months in little italy in T.O. and it reminds me of you for two reasons. 1: old italian men, 2: the houses look like they took your illustration of old houses and mad it real-er.

so that's nice.

bye bye.
