    Update: Added Attachment for a large view of alternative shot

    Illustration for the official Twitter Channel of Henrik Ibsen.

    Was a fun project and the client was pleased.

    The best kind :)

    Here's some quick Wikipedia-facts for those of you who might not be familiar with the subject:

    Henrik Ibsen (20 March 1828 – 23 May 1906) was a major 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet. He is often referred to as "the father" of modern drama and is one of the founders of Modernism in the theatre.

    @Anders: Cheers for the kind words. The typeface is Nevis. Added it now to the tags. (edit: Neutra, not Nevis)

    Is it the angle or did you adjust it? Lowered the focal point on the E and R?

    I apologize Anders. My bad, it was actually Neutra.

    Similar names and fairly similar fonts, hehe.

    @Gert - Thanks buddy! But like I pointed out earlier, I named the wrong font at first. It's actually Neutra (style: titling) and not Nevis bold.

    @Peter - Thanks a bunch Peter. I liked how the type went along with the illustration too. But it was merely for presentation of the piece. They're using the avatar w/o the type.
