  • How can I create this text effect?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to achieve this text effect?

    sort of like the title sequence from 'aliens' -

    Any tips would be super helpful. Thanks.

    Here's a possible first step toward something like that using Illustrator's Scribble effect...


    Overlay the untreated copy of the text...

    As you can see, come glyphs, like that X, might produce some funk, so it would be an Expand Appearance-then-refine proposition. Or perhaps it would have been more uniform if I had outlined the text first, rather than keeping it live.

    I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

        Or you could cheat and use a font like Beer Goggles:
