255 Weirdness

As we discussed in this week's project, it's harder than it looks for calligraphers* to write ugly letters on purpose.  (By accident? no problem!)  Here's Weirdness, an example of malligraphy done with the dropper of an ink bottle. Have fun!  

*It takes a real artist to do a bad performance.  One of the best--worst--recordings I've ever heard was a spoof of cocktail music done by Jo Stafford and Paul Weston called "Jonathan and Darlene Edwards in Paris."  You will never forget her off-key rendering of "The Last Time I saw Paris.."  (you have been warned). You could listen to it to inspire yourself to write badly.  

Preview of tomorrow's alphabet.
