A few more doodle swap doodles

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

The dog nose one was actually in a dream I had. It was incredibly, incredibly creepy at the time. That was probably 15 years ago, so you can see it stuck with me.

Another Doodle Swap

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

here’s another one for this sessions “Dreams & Nightmares” doodle swap. Another crummy photo rather than a scan, though. Once they’re all done I’ll scan them.

The theme for this session’s Doodle Swap is “Dreams and Nightmares.” I’m working on this guy at the moment. Others, too, but I’m happiest with Ol’ Sphincter Business here. The actual size is pretty small (this image should be about the right size – 2.5″ x 3.5″ – click for big) – and this is just a photo, not a scan, so it’s not super fantastic. Soz.

A short message to font designers

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

(hopefully our regularly-scheduled programming will resume soon. It’s been a busy summer.)

When you make your “free” font available only for “personal use” you not only guarantee that I shall not download your font, because I cannot keep track of who lets me use their fonts for what purpose, you thereby guarantee that your font will not make an appearance on the television spots my work appears in, the big-name web sites I work on, the small-name web sites I work on, or any other commericial work that might actually cause people to see your font. If you’re not a big name font designer (and sometimes even if you are), making your work available for free gets your name and your work out there.

…Just a small message from my other life as a graphic designer-type-person.
