Okay, you forced my hand this week! Too much happened in the last 48 hours that made me HAVE to post a news post this week!
NEWS of the WEIRD or NEWS of the WEEK — you decide!
The Pen Addict received a Cease & Desist from the Scribble Pen. Pretty sure its about as legally binding as those letters I get from Princes in Africa and those phone calls I’ve been getting from the IRS about wire transferring my life savings.
Thanks for blazing a trail:
Typographic legend, designer and lettering artist Margo Chase passed away on Sunday in a plane accident. She was best known for designing the Buffy logo, the Madonna Immaculate Collection logo and her typefaces. I had the privilege of meeting her once when I was working in Chicago and she has always been someone I have looked up to as a role model.
