I found my inspiration from two different sources. The first: This animated gif from Lightening Fox. I dig the floating diamonds. I decided to make my version 2D and jam packed, where the line between diamonds for some is non existent.
It will mostly be my fabric designs on different items. Except for deedoe, which is how Didot should really be spelled. If you know a designer, they'll get it. I came up with deedoe a couple years ago in a typography class. I told my friend about it, how I wanted to make some buttons with the idea, she jumped on it and had them made. We were going to name our company deedoe but I ended up moving to the West Coast instead, sorry Brooke! So I'm reviving my marketable idea. Why not?
About the typeface Didot: Besides being beautiful, when this typeface was first being punched, the foundry hired women to do the work; taught them latin and treated them well. This was during a time in france when women were considered a waste of space. The idea of educating a woman, laughable. For me it's always been more than just a typeface, but a symbol for equality.
September is technically the beginning of fall, even though it feels like summer just started here!
I thought I'd get with the times and start cranking out some warm and fuzzies.
We'll see how long that lasts...
I need to figure out what to be for Halloween!
I was thinking about being this girl
From the Jaan Pehechaan Ho video
She's cute and not slutty.
That's always the most difficult part of Halloween. I want to dress up and have a good time, but I'm not comfortable looking like a hooker.
I've been Ignatius Riley and Dog the Bounty Hunter in the past, but when I wear funny costumes like that, people think I'm a lesbo (not that there's anything wrong with being gay).I'm just a girl with a sense of humor
and a brain.
And who will be my pencil mustached man of mystery?
This is when having a boyfriend would be helpful...
