I’m so mad about the kerning on that T…
Not benign nor benevolent.
“We want to have – get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very – we’ll have a very peaceful – there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There’ll be a continuation.”

Jumping on a plane in a few hours. See ya soon, Chicago.
Oh, glory, I think I see you ‘round the bend.
Mostly lettering practice, but hey this is tomorrow!

I think about this constantly.

An average number of pages of lettering to go through trying to get things just right (or as right as they’re gonna get before I get sick of words).
More BNHA scribbles… I really love the opening theme’s lyrics.
