Our family is pretty nuts during March Madness. Even Sheba (the dog) has a bracket! Her picks are based soley on mascots, and no cats are ever picked to win. Her bracket is busted now, because she had the Washington Huskies winning the tournament. Poor Sheba.
Our Purdue Boilermakers are in the Sweet Sixteen! This is despite everyone picking us to go out early after we lost one of our leading scorers to injury. Tonight they take on Duke. I know they can do it, but it will be a tough game for the Boilers. Duke's a great team. We usually root for Duke, unless they play a Big Ten team (well, excluding I.U. of course). My husband got his masters at Duke. We were newly married and moved from Detroit to Durham. We remember those two years fondly. It is a beautiful area. I worked at a law firm in Chapel Hill. All the attorneys were UNC grads and huge Tar Heel fans. We did plenty of trash talking around the water cooler. :-)
This lettering is fun to do. I added the names of the players and the head coach into the letterforms. I learned this style of lettering from Barbara Close. You can check out Barbara's website here.
Here are some more "Textured Letters." This is a page from my Moleskine journal. I misspelled the author's name. (Sorry Bruce!) The correct spelling is Bruce Mau. You can visit his website and read his complete manifesto here.
Whether you're a college basketball fan or not, I hope you have a great weekend.
Go forth and flourish, and Go Boilers!
