Beautifully Obsessive Text Art Uses Deconstructed Journals

Deconstructing old journals and the hand-scrawled passages within, Australian artist Erin Smith creates text-based drawings using reassembled words and letters to build her compositions. Other pieces incorporate an automatic writing process that Erin draws directly onto the surface, combined with digital wizardry. It’s a nuanced and interestingly obsessive way to maintain a type of sentimentality without knocking you over the head with it. Also, we just get really excited zooming in on all those tiny letters that swim between her line work like alphabet soup. Hit the jump for more of Erin’s work.
