A Typ(e)ical Day?

Blossoming Types
Been wanting to photograph this piece of "legal" (it's right outside the office of the Object Gallery so I assume it's a commissioned piece by one of the artists that they rep?) street art for a while now but have never walked by it at the right time of the day.

Lucked out today at about 12.30pm, on my way home from an iced chocolate with the Despotic Queen of Shoes. Whoopeedoo! Love how the wall is lit by the sun bouncing off the window from across the alleyway.

I'd really love to see the piece grow, like a climbing vine all the way up to the eaves of the roof, bursting with more colours. It would be cool.

When I got home, I found these in my Inbox...

Edible Types
Marrying my two loves - food and cheeky typography!

"Handcrafted with love by Brigham Young University design students and faculty, for the 5th Typophile Film Festival. A visual typographic feast about the five senses, and how they contribute to and enhance our creativity. Everything in the film is real—no CG effects!"

Watch the full video here. It might bring some cheer if you're having another one of those typical days.

Yo, Ms J!
How about "kan si beh swee!"? xx

Hey yAnn,
Sometimes types, if done properly, do paint a better picture for me than a picture. I love them too. x

Hey Jafabrit!
Haha! Yes, yummy!

Alphabet bacon and chips for breakfast? x
