for the gullet

If you haven’t read Frank Chimero’s series The Back Side of Your Gullet Is Decadent and Depraved, you must. It’s a great series of stories that amounts to an introspection and examination of the state design at once. I found it personally relevant while contemplating my studio, this blog, and my application to Type@Cooper. This post cannot satisfy the way his writing does, but I hope it lands somewhere near the “Fun and Nourishing” quadrant.

I was running out of daylight and beer, so I quickly sketched the salient word from Frank’s piece. I thought a positive, upright, friendly script with some surprising connections might reflect how the article inspired me.

After an amazing dinner (thanks to Kelly), I snapped it with my iPhone and went to town in Illustrator. After an hour or so I had something fine (apologies to for a few of those hanging handles, but good extrema!).

Color was easy, given the topic and the nourishing/fun runner up to sex in Frank’s chart is the ripened peach.
