art day 30 – [crafts] Word Collage

I took a few of my short stories and dumped them into wordle.net. After a little fiddling, i like the results (for the second, probably better than the source material. :p)

First i did one of my published stories, “The Application of Gasoline and Sawdust.”

Word Collage 2

Then the second, the name of which will go unsaid:

Word Collage

Some of my Clarion mates may recognize the story, though they’ll probably wish they hadn’t. 😛

art day 29 – [crafts] 3 fonts

I’ve been interested in making fonts for awhile.

These three True Type fonts are experiments, and therefore very dirty and a bit disastrous. But hey, experiments have start somewhere.

————————————–

 

First try: I just whipped out my usual sloppy writing and made a font out of it: Test Font 1

Second try: Tried to be more careful. the results are inexplicably more messy: Test Font 2

Third try: Arg! Even more messy! I grabbed a bamboo nib that i had made for my friend Emily and the results are … interesting: Test Font 3 (Bamboo Emily)

Ah well, i’ll practice some more and try again later.
