rainy sunday … continued with the typewriting stuff. i liked the idea from my first try with the textile pattern, so i continued a bit. I made some basic elements first and then merged them into a larger image on a grid. It’s more like a flying carpet now or wavy glitch something. I also used other glyphs that give it a more dense, textile like appearance (/, %, §). I didn’t want to in the first place, but things got very complicated VERY fast and i had to use a text-editor for composition and as template for typing line by line… :idle:

mh also thought about this: how great it would be, if typewriting machines still would be produced today. I mean, imaging all the unicode glyphs available :thaenking: these old machines are very limited in characters.

@fragmentscenario or you could go the IBM Selectric route and figure out how to produce new golf balls for the ultimate printing experience.

@fragmentscenario please make one based on the text/glyphs “all work and no play make jack a dull boy” :blobcatgiggle:

@moiety
haha tbh already thought about this after 2 tries with too many errors :unwanted_angry:
