I made this for a competition I did with ~BrianMcGuire

I made this fresh off the back of making another typography piece with another Oscar Wilde quote, which if you like this you might want to check it out.

The textures used are
Grungy paper texture v.6' by ~bashcorpo
grunge textures 01' by *buzillo-stock

Constructive criticism is really appreciated.

Made using Adobe Illustrator

Are you aware that this has 1600+ notes on Tumblr? It popped up on my dash just now and the shock nearly killed me.

Huh, my signature quote, and I was thinking it was a song. Silly me.

Thank you, in seriousness--I love learning cool stuff, and this is cool.

this is a really great saying. I love to check sentences by great authors, and Oscar Wilde has really a great amount of them. I didn't know this one, thanks for showing it around.

never heard this quote before but I think I can make some good use of it since a lot of my friends have fallen into despair recently.

The negative space at the very top seems a bit off-balance, but overall the composition is simplistic and to the point, pretty good

Its always good to make other people feel better:D

And thats what i thought as well. But it is at least bottom heavy, so its not that bad:)
And thanks alot!

I already told Brian that I prefer yours, may as well say it here too. xD

(BTW, if you and Brian are in competition, who's the judge..?)
