Fair enough - although I wonder whether the legibility of “text” is the distinction I care about - Unicode contains many “characters” which are nontheless illegible to me.
Put another way: if Not My Type had been constructed using a huge set of wingding fonts, they would technically be “characters”, but the coolness would be gone, because they wouldn’t actually be text, compiled as image - they would be unitary character images, making up a larger image.
So. Digital text art… is a large subset of our main focus, digital character art?]]>
While I agree that someone mistaking us for a site about digital personae rather than digital art goes against our intent, I think that it would be out of character for us to close off that interpretation as one of the many readings of our site’s purpose. We study character (letter art), character (person) art, and character (qualities of) art. Why not let the meanings play out across our postings?]]>
