NOT MY TYPE (GOventure! Day 2). I enjoyed today's solution much more than yesterday. Did someone say TYPE? That gets me going. I would rather buy FONTS than shoes. I would rather look at letters than flowers. And one of the best parts of being trained as a graphic designer is getting to know typography on a personal level. My solution for today got away from the prompt - but, WHATEVER - I'm better known for breaking rules than I am for following them anyways. This is some type I drew up freehand (obviously) in Illustrator. I love hand drawn type. I love chaos. I love the way letters can develop relationships with other letters and lines and I love the way a point can be communicated and better emphasized by placement and treatment of type. SWOON. I HAVE NEVER MET A TYPE I DIDN'T LIKE. Well, that's pretty much a lie because there are a LOT OF FONTS OUT THERE THAT I THINK ARE GARBAGE but there's no font I can't figure out how to ROCK. (Even the ridiculously ugly ones like Papyrus and Brush Script to start the long, long list of uglies. Go ahead and challenge me!) I threw some woodgrain into the letters via PLACE in Illustrator and called it a day. I like this one. Now I'm getting warmed up. Bring it Elise. (I LOVE HER SOLUTION FOR TODAY, too.)

LOVED your solutions to the prompts. Play along with us again. Tomorrow's clue is: POCKET.
*Three cheers for our book club last night. I love that we have decided to put a ban on reading!
Today: Lots of playing and walking and staying alive in this humidity and heat. BLECH. I hate feeling sticky and I am already pining for jeans and sweaters. And hot chocolate. And MITTENS. Oh, yes I am. AND I'm gonna end the day at the DENTIST for a root canal. Oh, goodness.
