Motivation by MrBadger Motivation by MrBadger
Poster #2 in a series of typographic designs showing quotes that help me out or I feel are important.
where there is a will, there is a way

This motivational quote is short and sweet and can be related to many situations throughout my, or probably anyone else's day. There are times when work or something will bum me out and I feel like I have no will to go on, but I know inside of me there is a way I can push and strive to do what I need to.

All was created in PhotoShop.

Stock texture is from ~bashcorpo. Thank you for all those great grungy textures!

Please comment and critique and let me know what you think. Feel free to say what you need. I greatly appreciate it!:-)

My mother told me "Where there's a whip (grabs belt), there's a way.."

I never heard this one before... This sounds so much nicer than what mummy told me.

Mr Badger sir, I asked your permission to get this piece done as a tattoo and you agreed, asking that I upload a photo of the finished piece, so here you are sir, the link to my tattoo: [link]
Thank you for producing such an awesome piece of art that is now part of me forever!
MrBadger Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011
I am honored. It's an incredible feeling to know you praised this piece enough to make it a part of your life forever. Thank you my friend. I love it.

A friend of mine featured my tattoo on her blog, and gave you recognition for the design. Have a look: [link]
Vanskof Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I loved the piece from the moment I saw it, It's something I live my life by and its my pleasure to carry your art with me wherever I go!

the layout and the colour scheme are cool but I think the quote is a bit hard to read if i hadn't read your description I wouldn't have figured out what it said
Vanskof Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
As i said before ive used this design and edited it so i can get it done as a tattoo...i am trying to do a second tattoo with a similar style on my other shoulderblade so i can have matching ink on each shoulder. Please tell me what font you used for this, i absolutely love it. In case i never showed you, my final tattoo design for my right shoulderblade, based on this, is located here [link]
please let me know what you think, ill show you my new tattoo when its done, please tell me the name of the font you used here though, its simplicity makes it all the more powerful.
Vanskof Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
This design is one of my favourite of all time, i am even going to get a redesign as a tattoo on my you mind that?
MrBadger Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011
Of course not! It'd be a great pleasure to see it inked into someone's skin! Have a pic when you get it done :)
Vanskof Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Sweet, will do :)

I like it! Well made, original - great colors.
AnimenT Featured By Owner May 19, 2010
I enjoy the lettering and can see that you arranged things with thought.
However, It seems to me that you have not studied graphic design or at any rate reached the part about hierarchy of information. Your eye can be led by contrast size or tension etc. In this my eye had no clue where to go, after having read all the words I knew what you were trying to say and THEN worked the order out.

sorry if it comes across as a rant but you asked for critique, and this in terms of typography is not very strong. On the other hand should one forget there is meaning behind the words they are arranged nicely. My 2 cents.
creativepunk Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2009
One of my favourite sayings and I LOVE the composition! It makes the quotation that much more weighted (if you know what i mean? :S) but yeah - MUCH LOVE FOR THIS PIECE!
torado Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2009
this quote is so true!

its also featured on my design blog enjoy!

Cool typography work :) but what font is it that you use?
shadbpm Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2009
This is awesome!. Do you know how to create this in either Photoshop or Illustrator? I've been looking for a TUT on this for ever and cant find anything. Can you help?


ConstanT1ne32 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
nice work, what font did you use?
tomatpaburk Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2009
Wow it is amazing. I personally love typography art. One question, how did you make the background look dirty? Do you have some sort of picture that you start out with, or what. Because I would really like to be able to do the same thing but I dont know any good way of doing it.

And how do you create the effect of "destroying" the typo

Read the description. "Stock texture is from ~bashcorpo. Thank you for all those great grungy textures!"

I like this one too but for those that don't know this saying its a little hard to read in your design. But no worries I still love it.
