    I think it looks quite good but isn't very easy to read at all. Might just be my tired eyes though!

    Cheers, I'm thinking of doing a version 2..

    I started to get a little bored of it and struggled for ideas

    It's always the same when you have been working on something like that for so long. You need other's opinions as what started as a great idea starts to look rather bland to you after long enough!

    I think it's a great idea though, just as I say, I found it slightly difficult to read and I have perfect eyesight, no problems reading anything, just a little tired at the moment!

    I like it, it's a little tough to read but it's arty stuff so I'd expect it to be less than straight forward!

    It's brill but what about on just a plain white background to make it easier to read?

    You don't need to be able to make out every letter to know what it says, that's what art is all about . Kids will love it.

    I'm playing around with diffrent back grounds, I was thinking dark hard wood floor with a desk lamp shining light down on the text.

    I have to agree with the comments, some of the text is difficult to read, maybe I can improve with drop shadows.

    Strange thing to say, and I don't know if this was intentional or not, but the "art" in "depARTment" is a lot lot clearer than the word Art itself!

    Perhaps using those simpler letters have A r t down the left hand side in the empty space, thin horizontal line to break it to the right , and then move 'to' onto the second line so you can either see the 'easy' Art or read the more complex but quite pretty and beautiful message.

    Valid point... I didn't see that at first... probably because I spent to much time on it and eating sweets lol

    Will try and make it clear... If all faits I will do it again.

    I've made some school boy errors on this... Pleased I posted it on here for feedback
