A repository for creative things I have created.

Stories

So I said I write stories, but so far there are just two here that I think are decent enough to share. I’m slowly figuring out how to piece together the free time to write in, so more will come.

  • The Old Main LineThe pacing is a little odd, especially around the big blow-up, which was supposed to feel less sudden, and I’m not sure the underlying message came through that well, but all in all I like it. 25 pp., 2012.
  • What Happened Next: A short, weird little story about the internet. 5pp., 2015–16.

Fonts

I’ve made some fonts!

  • Newt Serif. First one I finished and put up for sale. Whimsical serif.
  • Solveig. Stressed sans-serif. Sort of like Optima but more interesting and a little less practical.
  • Walleye. Text serif with a massive character set covering Cyrillic and polytonic Greek.

T-shirts

During high school I discovered graphic design and started designing T-shirts, and I put them up on CafePress. Many of them are amateurish, inexplicable, or both, but there are some fun ones. In the olden days there were limitations on how many shirts of any style you could sell in one store, so I started three stores:

Language Stuff

So, you know how a lot of academic writing is god-awful and full of twenty-dollar words that you have to pick and slog through with a dictionary of Latin and Greek word roots open on the table?

Oh, you don’t keep a dictionary of Latin and Greek word roots around? Well even so, if you went to college you probably know what I’m talking about. When I was in college I wrote a paper about those words and why they’re so hard and what could be done about it. I think it’s a pretty decent and accessible paper; I tried to make it an example of less obfuscated writing. If you’d like to read it, it’s here:

Other Stuff

will appear here if I remember other neat stuff I’ve done that can be conveyed to you via electron streams.
