Stuff I'm Digging

Evil Genius

An interview with the guy I’ve wanted to punch a few times — sincere apologies, I know it’s not your fault — who created the dreadfully ubiquitous Comic Sans, Vincent Connare on the WSJ. I went and checked out the typeface he mentions priding himself in, Magpie, and it looks quite nice, though the whole preview method used on the site kinda sucks. (Kinda sucks as in it doesn’t offer much, and what it does is kind of interesting but not very useful.) I must admit I never thought about the fact that perhaps Vinnie boy didn’t intend for his simple creation to be the Black Death of modern typography — a little empathy I guess. Cool that he referred to both Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns (the latter of which I’m still working on).
