We just had a giant hail storm in Denver. All the flowers in the yard look like they’ve been through a shredder, but at least the car appears to be okay.
I’ve worked on several fonts since taking Teela’s amazing font making class. The very first one I released, Sweet Revenge, got its name from one of my favorite albums, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. You can pick it up on Creative Market in OTF, TTF and webfont versions or get the OTF version on Etsy.
When I finally finished my second font and realized the texture looked like moon rocks, I knew immediately what I wanted to call it. It’s no secret that I’m a gigantic Michael Jackson fan and keeping in line with the musically-inspired names, I present to you (drumroll please) Moonwalk.
I’ve wanted to make a font since I got my first computer in 1993. I’ve always love typography and lettering, and a font seemed like a natural extension of that. But making a font seemed really complicated and difficult, and I could never really figure out how to do it. Recently, I took an amazing class from Every-Tuesday on how to create fonts from your hand lettering. The result was this, my very first complete font.
I decided to call it Sweet Revenge, a reference to a classic My Chemical Romance album because it had a grittiness to it, but it was also kind of pretty, which reminded me of Gerard Way and the gang.
I just got my 12th pair of Zenni glasses today, and I think that counts as an addiction. As a glasses wearer, I always used to have one pair of glasses that I paid a ton of money for and lived in constant fear of accidentally breaking, but then I found out about Zenni. I know I sound like an infomercial right now (“there’s got to be a better way!”) but I really do love their glasses. They’re super affordable—I literally paid under $12 for several of the pairs I have, and that’s including prescription lenses—and they come in tons of really fun styles.
If you want to give them a try, and you absolutely should because they’re amazing, you can use this link and save $5. The ones I just got are #4413825, if you’re interested.
