10 free fonts that don’t suck.

It’s Christmas in August thanks to Neo2. They’re sharing a whole bunch of fonts (some better than others) all of which are totally free! Mac/PC! I picked out at least 10 that don’t suck! Head on over there, click on an image and then hit “ACEPTAR” to download. They even have a font based off the lasertype I featured awhile ago!

This was supposed to be the first image in the post but I changed my mind. I just couldn’t trash this little guy, so here he sits, after the “more” button, totally useless. (This collection of rolled paper letters is also available on Neo2!)

  • cheers angie – you definitely get what you pay for with fonts and you’d have to pick your spots when using these but as far as free fonts go i was surprised how good some of them were

Experimental Artist Petros Vrellis Creates Detailed Portraits With A Single Thread

 

Born in Greece, with a background in Electrical Engineering as well as Art Science, artist Petros Vrellis has a passion for creating interactive installations that blend art and technology. His latest project is a mesmerizing re-imagining of traditional handicraft.

Using a 28″ aluminum-rimmed loom, Petros runs a single thread from one anchor peg to another to create just the right density and darkening at precise intersections. The end result is a detailed image that emerges from 3000 – 4000 continuous loops (or 1-2 kilometers of thread)!

While Petros is following a set pattern developed from a computer-generated algorithm, as you can see in the time-lapsed video above, the step-by-step process is all done by hand. We had the chance to speak with Petros about his experimental process and why hand-made work still has a place in the digital age. Check out the full interview below!
