I love this piece so much, it seems to have an element of originality not seen in most type art. It also helps that I love dave. It inspired me to do my own rough style

Incredible!!! Could you perhaps share a bit of your technique? I've always been interested in attempting something like this but don't know how to go about it.

It's pretty simple, get a good source image and place it in illustrator (I convert to grayscale and tweak the level in photoshop first). Copy the lyrics in to the illustrator file and choose a type face. After that you just need the patience to make each word its own object and to rotate and resize to start build areas of values.

I usually start with the more detailed features and go from there.

Thanks, that was just what I needed to get the general idea.
I'll be sure to send you a link if I attempt something like this so you can give me some feedback.
Thanks again and keep creating great art! :)
