get out of your own way

get out of your inked 72Week 4 for TangledType. You can’t win them all, I guess. I’m just not happy with this one. I used an interesting sort of faceted typeface, but I just couldn’t think of what to do with it. I may revisit this one.

It also suffered from being printed on some cheap drawing paper that I cut down to go through the printer. It printed up fine, but did not like to be inked and it bled in an irritating way. Then it didn’t like to be shaded very much either. Usually the printer paper that I use doesn’t want much in the way of shading, but you’d think that even cheap drawing paper wouldn’t mind a bit of pushing graphite around. Lesson learned!
