No camera, had to scan & convert to bitmap:

(This is 400x600, and greyscale)

The scattered fragments below are intended to evoke icebergs, as they break away from a disintegrating ice sheet... hmm, try squinting.

Second entry

cut "PAPER paper" (not Vera sans, it's Ariel as mentioned below)

Like your concept zeimusu :)

I like the idea in the second attempt, very clever, but I think that's Arial.
Not that that impacts the quality of the idea. I'm still awaiting an idea of my own, in fact…

Cut "paper". Awesome.

C'mon AC, just get out some scissors and go for it!

ThinkAGM: Can you please scale the image down to 600px wide?
Thanks :)

You need to give it a different name.

a little comment:
i did the job on the train yesterday. when i sat there,
very concentrated working with my scissors on the
yellow cardboard, the finished letters put on a staple,
the conductress came. she smirked and and said it
would look a bit like christmas ...

ehhh, sorry but i can't get this png-file to upload.
is there a special trick? the reply-box shows only 'post comment'
but nothing like 'add attachment' -> ?

Hallo Ute!

Images can only be posted on Typophile if you hav the Flash 8 plug-in installed. Once this is installed, a little line of text will appear underneath the comment filed that says "Insert image". If you click on that, a pop-up window will appear.

I've attached an image here to show you what I mean:

thanks for the flash-unit dan! it's fresh installed now.
here's the image finaly

zeimusu's picture

You're right. That is Arial - I hang my head!

Mustard Seed's picture

Well I have attached my image... looking forward to great conversations on Typophile.

I have replaced my image with one of the same cutout just created a different way... the original was driving me insane ... at least the edges look ok now.

I'm probably not within the rules. Here's a go. Dimensions fixed.

Cerulean, if only you could cheat that r.

Some interesting stuff this week.

Don McCahill's picture

I like Cerulean's. Great creativity. Others are also good.

aaron_carambula's picture

Ok so I couldn't connect to the site at all on Friday, and was gone yesterday. So, late, and redundant (I think Jupiter Boy's photo is superior) is my submission. Too little too late. I didn't submit to the stencil thing so I sort of combined here:

aaron_carambula's picture

ThinkAGM, nice cutting! I'm curious if you penciled that out or just went at it with scissors/knife? I tried to free style and don't think the idea warranted the execution, where I could see yours as a very impromptu process.

ThinkAGM's picture

Aaron, I used the x-acto knife at work ! It was pretty tedius , but I did have a sketch to refer to. It did not come out as clean as I wanted it to be, but it does the job I hope!

aaron_carambula's picture

If it were too clean, no one would have believed it. I don't know why I didn't sketch first, just didn't take the time I guess. Lame. The whole warn/warm thing didn't quite come across, cutting is so permanent and all, no erasing, or worse, no dragging of points.

Nice to see the old handcrafted style in use
