RickRoll in Type by Dencii RickRoll in Type by Dencii
For years, wars had both been waged and settled through his name. He had stood time and traces of his presence will be forever upon us. His pure awesomeness had been a source of wicked joy to those capable enough to harbor it, and great woe to its countless casualties.

To those who wish to ask how I did this, be warned! I have nearly lost my entire vision for staring at magnificence in its purest form for hours. My sanity and artistic capabilities are quickly following suit. This is the price that I must pay for attempting to contain that which is uncontainable. I have succumbed to The Great RickRoll!!!

I was saving this for April Fool's but I just can't contain myself.

...gonna give you up
...gonna let you down
...gonna run around and desert you
...gonna make you cry
...gonna say goodbye
...gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Peace everyone and don't forget to take it easy! Live and Laugh! And watch out for Mother Teresa. Then after Mother Teresa would probably Ann Frank but I'm thinking of reading her book first.

A really well executed text art piece I always loved is RickRoll in Type by ~Dencii. Rick Astley is easily recognizable and the way the deviant managed to shade using this technique is simply brilliant and admirable. From distance is almost looks like a photograph! And besides that, what would be better on April Fool's than Rick Rolling your friends? All together now:
Never gonna give you up,
Never gonna let you down,
Never gonna run around and desert you.
Never gonna make you cry,
Never gonna say goodbye,
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you...
