Sunnycon 2019

SunnyCon Expo in Newcastle has just come and gone and I shared a trader table with my partner Sarah for the 3rd time.
The turnout was fantastic and we did really well selling our prints and such. Looking forward to next year’s and having some new designs to sell.

Alas, I didn’t manage to get any good photos of my designs close up on the table, but I’ve been teaching myself the new Adobe Dimension program. With it I have created some renders which I think look quite convincing. I was able to create simple models of the cards/stacks in Blender at the correct proportions and import them into Dimension. I found Adobe Dimension to be simple to use but also a little buggy when rendering multiple models at once, and would error when trying to render more than 4 items at once. A simple way around this was to arrange all the models and then hide all but 4 at a time and compose the images together after.

pxSans

A
pxSans - a sans serif lo-fi font
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
0123456789
!”#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^_`{|}~
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog!



This is a simple low fidelity true type font (ttf) I made called pxSans.
It’s my take on making a simple ‘Sans Serif’ font that conforms to a 5px by 9px grid for each character.
This five by nine pixel grid is the area allowed for all glyphs on top of regular letters.
For instance, the bottom row of pixels is reserved for symbols like the underscore and the tips of descenders on letters like y and g.

If your interested in using this font it’s available to download below for free for non-commercial use.
