The word portraits I've been creating lately are visually interesting but lack the ability to express longer text passages in a legible manner. I've started exploring another technique for combining images and text that might be better suited for this purpose.

The picture below is constructed from the text of Obama's victory speech on election night together with the iconic Hope/Progress image designed by Shepard Fairey. I had to fiddle a bit with font sizes and spacing to get the text to smoothly fill a complete rectangle but it was a fairly simple process.
