Quotes and archetypes and stuff

Postby Gervais » Sat Mar 16, 2013 9:11 pm

They're not the greatest thing ever, but this happened recently and thought I'd share. They're all brick quotes, and I can resize them for a banner or something if you want me to. They're not that great, though.

This was a stamp for Bricklayer I think, but I like how it turned out:

This one was a stamp for Marius, I believe.

And then my signature, putting here in case I change it:

Another quote from a few weeks ago: http://25.media.tumblr.com/aa07907330b8 ... 1_1280.jpg

And some of you may know that Marius and I have hijacked the Monomyth thread and turned it into an Archetypes discussion. Well, I've started to make some things that correspond with that.

Brilliant and beautiful, as usual! :mrgreen: I thought it would be Valjean at first, when I saw the title, but then I scrolled down, and Javert, and just...just...perfect.

Oh. Yeah. Duh. :wink: Well, you're welcome, of course, and you should do more! And we both should pay that archetype thread a visit, again, I think.

Yes, we should. :twisted:

So, um, I put this on tumblr, and it's getting quite a few notes. :shock: And people are actually visiting the Tale blog now, by some strange coincidence. Okaaaaaaay. :shock:

I got a typography app, and have been playing with it.

Preface, Take One: http://shinybarricade.tumblr.com/image/56993727339

Take Two: http://shinybarricade.tumblr.com/image/56994994038

I kinda like the second one better.

:mrgreen: Thanks, Marius.

An attempt at Drink With Me. The design is so original. :roll: (And I'm trying to figure out where that random "Y" in there is from. :? )

There's also this, with A Heart Beneath A Stone, but please don't try to read it because parts of lines ended up scattered all over the place. :|

The "Heart Between a Stone" is so dramatic!

Not really sure about them, though.
