Bear with me as I learn Final Cut and Motion and pardon the tardiness of this week’s video. This week (read: last week) I teach Chris about some of the lost letters from Old English and a bit of trivia regarding Ye Olde Porkie Pie Shoppe

Fuck Da Po lice

This is another one that, while not particularly nerdy, just struck me as son wonderfully incongruous. Plus I got to work on that majuscule “F” and this was good spacing practice. It’s in my etsy store which you can reach by clicking here and someone included it in a treasury supporting the march on Wall Street.

This video is an example of that because, you must, it is imperative, you must understand that Chris and I reMEMber this video but have been completely [...]

Get Your Ass To Mars

I don’t know why, but this just popped into my head and I figured I’d make a calligraphy piece. It’s in blackletter textura quadrata. I didn’t do anything particularly clever with it, though I like the implied link between the T and the Y and, obviously, “Mars” is in red because it’s, duh, the red planet. I put it in my etsy store which you can get to by clicking here
