256 Skritchy

This alphabet, Skritchy, not only looks but sounds creepy.  

  1. Take a coffee-stirrer and break it in half.  
  2. Dip it in black ink.  
  3. Hold it at right angles to the direction of the stroke.  
  4. Then drag it along on cheap paper.  

The wood corner on paper will stick and slip a little, making that jagged, itchy line.  And it also makes a little noise like dead fingernails on chalkboard.  The blots and splats are a bonus. Enjoy!
