The alphabet fades away

Would you like to read a book in which this happens?
It’s one of my all-time favorite books.  It’s called Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn.  He describes it as an “progressively lipogrammatic epistolary fable.”
It is written in the form of letters between the citizens of the fictional island of Nollop, an independent nation off the coast of South Carolina and home of Nevin Nollop, who invented the phrase “the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.”  That phrase is written in tiles over a statue of Nollop in their town square, and when one night a storm causes one of the tiles to fall, the council decides that it’s a sign from Nollop that they are no longer allowed to use that letter, in speech or writing, on pain of progressive punishments including public beating and up to banishment.
Then another tile falls.  Then another.
The citizens, who are all very attached to their words and writing, mount a campaign to come up with a phrase that uses all 26 letters but is shorter than Nollop’s, thus proving that he was not divine and negating all the edicts.
Because the novel is told in the form of letters the citizens write, and this is the genius part…the author must also stop using the letters as they fall.  So the book gradually stops using letters until at one point I think they’re down to just five.
The resolution literally made me get up and dance around the room.
It’s clever, creative, and a not-really-veiled-at-all parable about monotheistic oligarchy.  It’s not a long book, you can read it in an afternoon.
GO READ IT RIGHT NOW.

Anonymous asked: can you tell me how did you learn to draw like that because I could really use advice or someone to teach me?

petite-madame:

Hi anon!

I’m self-taught. I’ve never been to an art school but my aunt was an art teacher (she’s fine, I just said “was” because she’s now retired). ^^

When I went to visit her during the summer as a kid, she would give me intensive art lessons and tons of tips to improve. She was also my art beta for a while. I went to seek for her help when I had problems. She used to give me what I saw as very boring exercises (learning to draw an apple, decomposing an image, drawing a landscape with one vanishing point, then two, etc… ) but all this was damn useful. Even if I didn’t see her often, she definitely put me on the right tracks.

Otherwise, I had art lessons at school but you know, it was nothing sophisticated, just 2 hours a week.

If you want to learn drawing you have to start by the technical basics, anatomy, volumes, perspective, etc…People often ask me the question about where to find tutorials and how to start so I gathered some questions here. I think that questions 2, 3, 5, 6 might be for you.

Just remember that even if it’s boring as hell, starting by basic technical stuff and exercises will make you improve a lot faster.

Otherwise, I don’t give art lessons. People often ask me if I can “teach them how to draw” but I’m not a teacher. I’m trying to help as much as I can with links to tutorials but I don’t have the ability nor the time to have students. :/

Thanks a lot for your message! Have a nice weekend! :3

we need to protect and defend anthony mackie at all costs because he is a wonderful person who acknowledges the importance of representation and diversity and he is so goddamn enthusiastic and excitable and lovely. mackie is a gift to this world and we must elevate him to superstar levels.

so basically someone made a redesigned version of Comic Sans and holy shit I never knew I could warm up to something that resembles Comic Sans like this

I’m not a typographer so my eyes aren’t trained for this but I think I might use this from now on

yes

A heroic effort

It looks really good to me.  A lot cleaner.

Neat.

YES
