People from all walks of life submit powerful quotes from icons that range from the popular to the obscure. Thus begins a painstaking process of research, drawing and design that results in a hauntingly beautiful vector portrait. The final piece features a rare image of the quote’s author and the quote itself, written using the fonts of emerging and often unknown typographers. The collection has been both a critical and commercial success, resulting in over 50 showings, private purchases, and high demand as demonstrated by the continued submission of new quotes from people all around the world.
