So this week I wanted to express my love of typography by taking an amusing quote from a video game (Cave Johnson in Portal 2) and having some fun with it. Honestly, I never realize until I did this how difficult it can be to arrange words like this but I’m really happy with how it came out. The exploding lemon in the background was painted using Procreate for iPad which is now my new favourite painting app if for no other reason than it saves nice high quality .png files.

UPDATE May 6th, 2014: I’ve done another design inspired by this piece a week. You should check it out: http://www.redbubble.com/people/insecondsflat/w...
