    Sad, but true, Graham.

    But sad.

    Physical users groups gave way to forums, to social media. Post a bad photo rather than a profound reply to friends.

    Tech has become a consumptive device for far too many. Yeah, mobile devices, mostly phones. More than 50% of phone users text. A very small percentage of owners use the phone to make and receive calls. Our nephew felt email was too slow and too much of a hassle, so he didn't replay to us when Barbara's dad was too old to drive and the car plates needed turning in.

    He also didn't see the purpose in owning a workstation. So I showed him how I create animations and he told me he could see all the animations he wants on YouTube.

    He's 23, BTW.


    Okay, it's lamentable, in the literal sense of the word. It's not a pity, it's not a shame, it really doesn't affect me that no one will download free stuff crafted by real artists on TG.

    I can't fight the entirety of our culture.

    Not until someone is really, deeply hurt when someone tells them they aren't curious enough, and lack imagination.

    Default Ampersands. 44 in fact.

    This is more of a Clipart gift rather than a neat Gary Drawing.

    But I drew it in Xara, I use it in Xara so tough ░░░░ ... darts

    I either auto-traced copies of materials or drew each one by hand. I did not break a glyph out of any existing fonts.

    The locked text descriptors (converted to curves) either reference from which font I "adopted" where applicable, or I suggest a typeface that will work well with a specific ampersand glyph.

    Get inspired!

    You're welcome, folksó

    Clipart is something that's pretty lame not to share. I get freemiums and freeware fonts and photography all over the web, and I'm just trying to balance the scales a little, as it were.

    And to drum up a little ▓▓▓▓▓ traffic, because otherwise, tg is getting BOR-ING. 🌞

    It's boring because Xara is failing us in not engaging and assuaging concerns about its products, its direction and support. Rob-Xar does a great front act but without the rest of the cast showing up, all we see are curtains, metaphorical and literal.

    I want the products to sing so true artists and designers can focus on their craft. Web presentation is a necessary adjunct as without the mechanism, all the art in the world would become niche.

    only a small percentage of the population have a truely creative imagination... when you think about it that makes sense, if all had one it would no longer be 'creative', it would be the norm
