Font Self-Portrait by carynvstheworld Font Self-Portrait by carynvstheworld
A self portrait created entirely out of font. No manipulations to characters (i.e. un-scaled stretching or cropping). Glyphs and punctuation used. Done in Illustrator CS2.

It's a graceful photo so I chose to use script fonts for the swoops and fine lines.

Fonts Used:
:bulletred:Aether
:bulletred:Edwardian Script
:bulletred:Fleurish Script
:bulletred:Hurricane
:bulletred:The King & Queen
:bulletred:Lorrene
:bulletred:Mutlu Ornamental
:bulletred:Scriptina
:bulletred:Yves Script
:bulletred:Zapfino

Oh wow. Beautiful. I suppose you used parentheses for the face.
I showed this to my brother (who's a total font geek) and he gave an offhand "yeah cool" and then I told him how you made it and he grabbed my laptop to take a closer look and all he could say was "cooooool". So yeah. It's cool. =]
