Playing a bit of catch-up this week I printed the info sheet for my shelf of text I had straightened in the previous weeks. What you see here is a Blackletter 10pt. Wedding Text, shaded. Turns out the lowercase "v" was a tricky one to identify. Looking at the metal type it looked like a 6 or 9. The 9s were missing from this case so I assumed I had found them and my lazy partner had put them in the wrong slot. Using the type taxonomy book It was determined that the little flare off the left side made it a "v." Whoops, sorry Kyle. When printing I was surprised at how little pressure it required to get the print you see above. Just like rolling over a nearly unnoticeable bump in the road.
Joining my fellow graduates we mixed paint and made a lovely shade of salmon (see above). Weijian shouted orders and I complied as we played with all these lovely colors. We came upon a nice color combo and printed a piece that had some odd sign language that spelled out the words "HEYU." These rested gracefully atop a plane shape which bore down upon some woodtype that spelled out the word "swoop." We had a masterpiece, it was clear.
Cleanup was a hefty process, hence my mention of it. We had enough used palette knifes to caulk the holes in a rock stars hotel room. Sitting there scrubbing alone reminded me of the detention time in high school days. However, scrubbing off palette knives and rollers were much more pleasant that the multitude of commodes that waited for my bristled brush.
