For 36 Days of Type, I wanted to try something different. Something with a personal story. So here's mine:
Once upon a time, there was a little boy, four years of age. While on a vacation to visit family, he showed the most unchild-like behavior: he didn't smile, he didn't talk, he kept his head down. Then he started having head pains so bad that he would try sitting in the fetal position to soothe the pain. After several doctor's visits, it was discovered that the boy had a brain tumor the size of a golf ball. As he recovered, he lived a normal childhood, and discovered a love for art, and he would soon find out that it would help him through the toughest time of his life. Four years after having the brain tumor removed, and gaining some sense of normallcy, during a routine checkup another tumor was discovered. They shaved his hair, and while he tried to return to a normal life, he was embarassed by his appearance. To cover it up, he'd wear bandanas: some classic, some camouflage. His favorite one has an eagle on it. That boy is me.
To represent that time in my life, I used pieces of camouflage to disort each letter. And while my memories of which event took place during which operation are blurred, I combined serif and sans serif type to create a signle letterform. This is my font, False Memory.
Font coming soon. In the meantime, feel free to download the vector version.
