Certificate of Lack of Recognition
For those of you who've never won an award, trophy, contest, or acknowledgement from some random committee,
this Certificate of Lack of Recognition is for you. To all the unsung heroes who work the long hours,
inspire others, help those in need but never really get their due recognition.
 
A limited edition, two color (copper & white) silk screen print that lets folks know that you
are recognized without being formally recognized.
Printed on both black and midnight blue 100lb paper, this certificate is for YOU.
 
Based on a hand lettering piece I created from scratch and then hand-vectored to smooth out all the rough edges. You can buy this piece at www.nimbenreuven.com
Here's how the vectored version looks with all its anchor points lit up.
Most of the points were added automatically when I expanded the strokes, so it looks super chaotic.
Here is the final pencil sketch of the piece before I scanned it in to vector it.
And here is a previous sketch of it in which "certificate" was placed in an arc.
I was never able to make the proportions and spacing look that good with it so I decided to scratch that version.
I also hand painted a version of this on black paper just to see how it would look as a future screen print. The arc is still goofy here.
Thank you for taking a look at this project. And I hope that you get the recognition you deserve for all your hard work!
Meantime, feel free to check me out on Instagram for giveaways and stuff as well as on my website if you're interested in purchasing a print.
