Paul Shaw has written a review of my Alphabet Soup Type Founders for the April issue of Print Magazine, where he writes about three of my four font releases. He didn’t write about my latest release—an update of the classic Bank Gothic which has my newly added lowercase—because it hadn’t been relased yet. At any rate you can check out the review either by going to the Print Magazine website, or if their website proves too troublesome, I’ve reproduced Paul’s review here.
I recently did a logo for Bette Midler’s Las Vegas show at Caesar’s. The art director is actually and old pal of mine, Rod Dyer, a really colorful character who incidentally has a dual career operating one of LA’s best and longest running restaurants: Pane e Vino. Laura (my wife, illustrator Laura Smith) and I have loved going there for years—it’s undoubtedly one of our favorite LA restaurants. It has a fantastic outdoor garden seating area where you can always see some of Hollywood’s glitterati. One day while having lunch with Rod, Billy Dee Williams joined our table, Rod left, resulting in our having lunch with Lando Calrissian.
