Inspired by Cogdog’s ds106 image compulsion, I decided to have some fun with a recent gem “You Cant Exit ds106.” I basically used that image as a backdrop for my own sign slighting riffing off his sign. I’m still mucking around in GIMP, but I have to admit sometimes I miss Photoshop.
Importing fonts into GIMP to get the right roadside fonts failed for me, so I had to approximate. Actually, scratch that, I found these road these Road Geek fonts as a free download. After copying them into my Mac fonts folder in the Library directory and restarting GIMP I could use them no problem. Much happier with this than I am the first go around—I have to learn to stick with design, it doesn’t come easy and maybe that is why i like it so much.
This assignment falls under the Visual category, more specifically “Illustrate 106.” I never get tired of the significance this number has taken on beyond a course number.
