Tribute to the Dalai Lama by yatu-ex Tribute to the Dalai Lama by yatu-ex
"There is no need for temples, no
need for complicated philosophies.
My brain and my heart are my temples;
my philosophy is kindness. "
~ Dalai Lama


This was done as a studyproject for art-classes,
illustrating correlations of quotes and imitation - and
this was my first attempt at doing some serious typography.
I tried to use either entire parts of Dalai Lama's
speeches or significant words from him.
Huge inspiration came from *dylanroscover and
of course ~Straye-Close
I've been practically working on this piece every
moment I could spare the last couple of days
and am happy I didn't give up!!!

Here's a link to the work-in-progress-gif: [link]

...in love with Typography :heart: c&c welcome!


:llama:certainly an important part of life!


EDIT: The DD truly means a lot to me,
so thank you very much ^jussta + ^pica-ae (:

I actually met the Dalai Lama a few years ago when I was younger, he was in town to visit his brother, he's compassionate, and actually kinda funny.

That's cool. I've been reading the Dalai Lama's books since last year, and kind of following what he does. I really like his philosophy of compassion. He's a great man.

OM MANI PADME HUM!
His Holiness has touched my life so deeply from the moment I first encountered the Tibetan culture in his exile home!
