    did a second batch

  • Abusing a Neural Network Drawing Tool intended for faces… (makying TYPE-FACES?)

    This morning i came across
    it allows you to draw faces and have it blend with a source image in an intelligent fashion.

    Warning - it's highly addictive.

    Now drawing with a mouse the results of the letter shapes are crude,
    however, I thought it was an interesting enough experience that id like to share the results with you here.

    Further it would be interesting to see what could happen if the underlying
    reference is typographic instead of a human portrait, 

    David Březina presented some materials during one typostammtisch in berlin
    that showed computer generated letter shapes based on a small number defined of glyphs
    somehow interpolated from a huge database, kind of makes me wonder how human intervention 
    could manipulate the results in a not unsimilar fashion to what is seen here. simply by scribbbling a little here and there…

    so instead of your drawing being blended with a face it could be blended with a didot, haettenschweiler or whatever…
    the experience also reminded me of lucas de groots porno font.

    some more faces

  • Collecting/sharing unusual symbol designs

    would be nice if any of you would like to participate and share some "fundstücke"

    Heres a neat percentage sign i came across
