Wonky Cursive

Jun 30
Greetings, I’ve added a new wallpaper to the site. I’ve also made three new backgrounds
…And a new font. Cursive fonts are terribly difficult to make, especially with the cheesy free software I’m using, so this typeface is a little wonky looking. Probably works better at smaller sizes.
That’s all for today!

Shrute Farms embroidery

Everyone Loves Beets

Apr 20
Howdy.
I’ve finally finished this embroidery. It’s been staring at me (and pretty intently, for an inanimate object) for weeks and I sewed the last bit up this afternoon.
It’s Dwight Schrute from "The Office," whose character owns a beet farm. There’s a scarcity of Schrute related art. Why, friends?

I’ve also made a new font, named after a fort built in 1839 in my hometown of Sacramento. Because, well, why not?Have a lovely Tuesday!

Amy Winehouse embroidery

Amy Winehouse embroidery- back

Voiceless Palatal Fricatives

Mar 7
Hi there,
I’m back with a new embroidery.
I’ve never seen Amy Winehouse in real life, but I’m guessing birds could comfortably nest in her giant beehive. Apologies for the bad scan. In real life it looks almost like a graphic design instead of an embroidery. At least until you look at the back. I’m always curious to see what other embroideries look like on the back. It’s sort of interesting in its own messy, abstract way.

I’ve also got a brand new font. This took an amazingly long time to create because the program I normally use up and decided to start charging me money to use it. So I had do research and download a new program to make this thing, and it took nearly a month to get it finished. So I probably won’t be making too many fonts from now on.

I was going to draw the Queen of Diamonds but I heard she’ll beat you if she’s able. Yes, that really was a "Desperado" reference.

This font also has a lot more characters than the others, so if you ever needed to use the Icelandic alphabet or the IPA symbol for a voiceless palatal fricative, then this is for you!

More for October

Oct 30
Hiya!
I’ve added four new backgrounds to the site.
Also, there are two new fonts available to download. One is a 1940s movie throwback, and the other is a creepy looking typeface for Halloween.

Sooo… HAPPY HALLOWEEN, everybody!

if you ain’t got the do-re-mi

Oct 8
Hello there.
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.

There are three new backgrounds available.

I finally 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.
