Martin Luther King Jr. in Type by Dencii Martin Luther King Jr. in Type by Dencii
EDIT 12/16/09: A reworked version can be found here [link]

I finally got myself into making a piece again after a long time. Been busy with my band which of course I will mercilessly promote here: [link] I have uploaded 1 Thrash Metal track and 1 song you would wanna make love to.

On to the project: This is part 2 of what I'm planning to do as a series after the success of my John Lennon piece (which can be seen here: [link])
MLKJr. photo reference here: [link]

Once again, nothing but Bickham Script Pro letters, numbers and characters. Scaled, not distorted. About 8-9 shades of gray.

Next up would probably be JFK or Mother Theresa or Gandhi.

As usual you may download, share, print. Just don't steal or sell. But of course I secretly want you to so if I ever catch you, then I'll sue you so I won't have to look for a job.

He had a dream... then came Obama. I bet he couldn't be any prouder. Peace to everyone.

" 'I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal. I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.'

And finally... That dream became true. Well executed Text Art piece, with a great meaning behind it. Be sure to watch and take a good look at the details! "
