It’s been a while since my last update, so I’m adding some extra stuff this time.
Right now California’s unemployment rate is the highest it’s been in 70 years. And so my latest wallpaper features a quote from a Woody Guthrie song written 72 years ago, back when the unemployment numbers were similar.
California is a garden of Eden, A paradise to live in or see; but believe it or not you won’t find it so hot if you ain’t got the do-re-mi.
On a personal note I’ve recently had some good news on the employment front, and my soul-crushing search for work has finally, thankfully, turned up with something. All the best to all those searching for work right now- it’s rough out there but don’t give up.
Also, there’s a lovely new wallpaper featuring birdies. And credit cards. This made more sense in my head than it does on screen but dammit I think I did a kick-ass job drawing those birds. (Is ‘kick-ass’ hyphenated? Does adding proper punctuation to swear words reduce the impact? DAMN IT I am such a nerd).
There are three new backgrounds available:
And now, finally, thanks to the magical wonder of a website called FontCapture, I figured out how to make my own fonts. I’ve been wanting to make fonts for years but I never knew how. So… without further ado, here’s four new typefaces in TrueType format:
All these fonts are free to download and use, even for commercial purposes.
That’s all for today. I’m working on another embroidery so hopefully that will be done soon. Ciao!
