Is it more appropriate to call this the GIF of the Day or the Font of the Day? These are the hard questions we ask ourselves over at the AFC HQ. What you’re looking at are letters that spell out Art F City in Rollin Leonard‘s “Liquid Diet Font.” The font is available in the “meat,” “glitter,” and “Rollin” motifs—above you get a sampling of all three.
Not that anyone asked, but my preference is “glitter,” at least for the AFC logo. I think I speak for everyone here at the blog when I say we’d rather be associated with a party, rather than shiny beef or the uber-creepy distortions of Leonard’s own body. Download the font here.
Jayson Musson is back on YouTube, but not with his well-known “Art Thoughtz” web-series featuring Hennessy Youngman. Instead, we get “The Adventures of Jamel: The Time Traveling B-Boy,” created and written by the artist and directed and edited by Scott Ross. It’s flashy, and has more in common with Chappelle’s Show than Hennessy’s old show. Straight up, it’s a hip-hop comedy with sci-fi and social commentary thrown in the mix. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a pilot in the works for any premium cable channel.
Without giving away any spoilers, in the first episode, we’re introduced to:
An Iraqi baby skull filled with Merlot
A time-traveling janitor
Mention of anal sex with goats
Breaking the bonds of slavery with the power of hip-hop
Are we playing Cards Against Humanity? No. This is just Jayson Musson’s new web-world, a world without art. So very populist of you, Musson.
