My 3D photos never turn out this cool ⊟
It’s hard to take an awesome photo with the 3DS’s camera — the feature was obviously built with gameplay functions in mind and not for taking high quality shots. This is still the coolest wigglepic I’ve seen taken with a 3DS.
The above shot turned out so cool because No Anchor took it with a fancy Nimslo stereo camera. I hope someone caught the Game Boy Color and that it’s now in the hands of someone who loves the portable.
By the way, if you’re looking for a new site to post your 3D photos to (now that 3D Porch is just an archive), upload them to Stereotastic with your 3DS!

36 days of type
I noticed this open project over on Instagram recently, organised by Alejandro López Becerro. There’s a huge variety of characters to look through including just these 3D designs by Alejandro himself.
While the main letters were going up in April/May the project still seems quite active. Search on #36daysOfType and #36days_<glyph name>.
The R that didn’t make it.
I’ve been working on lettering and typography project, following on from my Exmouth Print. One the drop caps or illustrated initials that I need to illustrate is an fun ‘R’. I took inspiration loosely from the lettering on the iconic ‘Golden Gallopers’ carousel on Brighton Pier. While the gorgeous hand-painted lettering on the ride has a jaunty, seaside feel, I needed something a bit more ‘typographic’ but keeping that flamboyant style.
Although the work in progress above has been through a few iterations—and much line pushing—it’s become clear that this style is not going to sit well within the overall design. I thought you might like to see it as the final one will likely be quite different.
DC is doing 3D covers in September again.
I look forward to being so angry that my eyes bleed red for another 30 days!
