So a few days ago I posted my Ultimate Comic Sans made entirely of letters from artists’ signatures and asked to see if anyone could guess them.
A few folks so far have gotten some (usually E, L, S & T), but I think it’s been long enough, so here’s the answers:
So how’d you do?
So a lot of people really hate Comic Sans.
I can’t say I’m wild about it, but I didn’t really give it a lot of thought. At least until recently.
I thought it might be fun to build the ultimate Comics Sans out of famous cartoonists and comic artists’ signature. And after a bit of Googling and scanning, I have it:
Each letter is the first letter of the last name of a famous artist’s signature. Here’s an example to get you started – the letter "A" is the "A" from Charles Addams’ signature. Make sense?
See if you can guess the rest! I’ll post the answers in another blog post.
UPDATE – The answers are up! Go see how you did!
This looks to be a student film, but it’s realtively well made, and some if the information is interesting:
If Mark Heath were a cop, not only would he play by his own rules, he’d probably alphabetize them and pick out a really nice font.
Check out Mark’s blog about contemplating breaking his own Spot the Frog rules. It’s the kind of blog I love to read â€“ a much deeper look into what cartoonists think about.
And go read Spot, dagnabbit!
(BTW, the green font isn’t an error. After writing that title I got a little goofy with my blogging software. It’s been a long day and I’m a little tired and punchy. So sue me.)
