This is my hackery. An image taken from stock photography, with brushes downloaded free from a website, with a typeface I did not create, with a cliche that everyone has uttered at least once.
But alas, it is my own.
A bit more about my design eye, just in case anyone's curious. I like working with photography. I feel that photography makes my projects mean a bit more, because it's infused with things from the real world. In high school, I made a flyer for a prom. It was a girl lying on the ground, facing the camera. It looked very chic, but no one understood it. At that point I thought I was an artist.
I'm not. I just make graphics.
