I recently posed the question in an edition of Fly in the Ointment:
How do you feel about your own handwriting?
Reflections and samples welcome below.
I’m self-conscious about it, but love the fact that it is undeniably mine. Like a fingerprint, my handwriting is part of my identity. I love that.
And there’s that fancy script!
I like my hand-writing, and may one day bother to take the time and
turn it into a proper digital typeface. That said, I really want to get
into “lettering” as a new design skill. It looks fun and is always yummy
when printed. If I was near a scanner, I’d upload something for show n
Post something when you get a chance, please!
And do consider reading Script and Scribble.
I’m pretty unhappy with mine and finally to a place where I’m trying to determine the next step (mainly: what do I want it to look like?)
I actually like yours. It has an artistic sloppiness to it, whereas mine is just sloppy. Maybe it’s just a “grass is greener” kind of thing.
Never been too big a fan. I always thought I’d have time to make adjustments but as the years went by, it never did change. I always liked yours, Matthew. I remember when you moved out, I went through a stack of your old notebooks from high school that you’d left behind. It hasn’t changed a bit.
Yours looks so much like Dad’s.
My handwriting is crap, but I’ve never cared all that much. I do 95% of my writing on computer.
what a range!
Since you made it this far, you deserve a reward. Check out this great video featuring Ice Cube.
And thanks for being a part of my inviting experiences.
