I Belong

Large spray painted lettering on a brick wall saying "I belong to God" with incorrect punctuation

I think that the quote marks are for emphasis and that this is indeed a question. It’s a long piece stretching over 50 feet. The lettering — especially the G in God — reminds of me of director Tim Burton’s work. I guess we all just want to belong, but that we don’t like being told to whom.

The Only Magic

black sticker with white text saying, "the only magic I still believe in is love"

Belated, obligatory, Valentine’s day post. I’m not sure of the quote/text origin. At least it has some custom lettering (I think, maybe it’s just an off the internet typeface). I like the “A”, like the “O”, don’t like the “B” as it’s really just a “3” and a little too sci-fi for the rest. Kerning could be better too, but…sigh…that’s a lost art these days.
