Then I learnt how to change the structure of the letters.  By going on Window then Type. I have changed the sizes of the letters and their colors, also I could change the kind of fonts and modify the space between letters as I wanted  as my will.Screen Shot 2016-10-14 at 15.10.21.png

Then I had the task of  experiment to reproduce my face by using only letters like David Carson’s artwork.

I took a photo of myself on photo-booths and placed it on illustrator. I locked the layer of my profile image for not make it move during the task. I used my illustrator’s Type tools knowledge for reproducing Carson’s work.
