Gemma's Letter Poster Publication

My Good Friend Gemma who i studied with in my first year of fashion design at diploma goes to university in Leeds she is a graphic designer who is putting a Letter poster publication together to show the work of artists and designers from all over the world. She asked me to submit a piece which is what i arranged the shoot for shown on here a couple of weeks ago. I got the Letter F which is cool as i was doing the fashion side of the design industry! Here is the image in all its final glory!
