I have stopped smoking 3 weeks ago and so it would be perfect for me to use one of this pictures, eg. the third last. Can I use this picture?

Best regards

Awesome, can’t wait to turn out some cool smokey fonts.

It is amazing what you can do with smoke typography. My favourite is definitely the first one, mainly because of the colours but the font itself is also pretty cool, simple but yet really pleasant to look at.
