Letters from America
Sunday 4 March 2018
I went to see Black Panther during the week which was an all round adventure. I was very taken with the animated font that was used for the credits at the end of the film. So much so I did some searches and uncovered a version of the font that a fan had developed after having seen the film and also having been enthusiastic about the merit of the graphics. The creative fan called the font Panther. Here is an image I did using the font (I posted this on Twitter at the time I made it):
Perhaps the font won’t look much in this static form. All I can say is the clever geometric unpacking of the font during the extended credit roll for the film itself was great, it was really captivating.
Something else pretty captivating happened during the week too. I went roadside rambling in the country to pick blackberries – they are ripe just now. These blackberries were not affected by any Council spraying (otherwise they would be well and truly dead) and the fruit was delicious. The very day I picked the blackberries I received a wonderful photo from my resourceful friend M.E., which was a shot of his latest crop of home grown figs which he had just picked. So I had my own fruit photo to match, just by luck. Figs are an absolute favourite and if I am fortunate I may get a cutting of one of M.E’s fig trees to grow in the country when conditions are right. Here is the pair of fruit bowls:
