Seasonal and timely. As usual, my holiday profile name is Dire Red Omen. Update: I calmed this down because it was driving me crazy. And the older versions….
This post, clickbaitingly called Know If a Font Sucks actually has some fascinating tidbits about compensating for our eyes tricking us. Hat tip to Janet Jia-Ee Chui.
One of the valuable things to learn when you go outside your comfort zone, that it’s going to be okay. Probably. When I was at the World Domination Summit in Portland recently, speaker Michael Hyatt said this during his talk. It was one of the things he said that I found most profound. Since then, […]
For Westercon, I made a Lousy Book Cover for comedic effect. After all, I had to have one to show at the panel, right? So I picked a great photo. I picked a great typeface. And deliberately made a grievous error. Behold. Courtney Milan Talks Type I bring this up because Courtney Milan’s got a […]
Now available on Redbubble: prints, posters, t-shirts, pillows, totes, phone cases, iPad cases, and greeting cards. I love this E.B. White quotation.

This is a saying of mine. I remember talking to a woman who wanted to go into technology, but felt she had little to offer because there were people with more expertise already. This is what I said to her. I hope it helped. Credits Main font: Brave by Nicky Laatz, purchased as part of […]
Now available in t-shirts, posters, prints, cards, and stickers from Redbubble. This is one of those pieces where I sat on it overnight and took an entirely new approach when I did. 100% detail: Pretty much everything remained the same except the background, but that’s so dramatically different now. Credits The background itself is a […]
I know you know me now. I’m mad crazy for fonts. I’ve largely suffered this in silence. I can be silent no more. I know I’ve mentioned Design Cuts before and their current font bundle tickles me in a way no other font offering ever has. I know I talk about them a lot, but […]
