A Font, Named after Me?!!!...

Well, I must admit that this is certainly a unique honor! My Halloween collector friend and typeface designer extraordinaire, Jason Walcott of JAW Arts.com, recently designed a font and named it after me!.... He surprised me with the news over the summer, so I have been anxious to see the results. Jason designs typefaces for Veer and actually has his very own Font Foundry named Jukebox. The typeface he designed and named after me is appropriately titled "Johanna Whimsy!".... What fun! It's a beautiful font and what a special honor..... Thank you so much Jason as you certainly captured the whimsical spirit of my art and masterfully translated it to alphabet form..... Amazing!....

To purchase this whimsical font, please visit Veer's Website.....
For more fun, tour Jason's Vintage Halloween site too..... No surprise, this is how we met!....

Well.....You have friends in all the font places...
Some people have mountains, some have bridges, and some have buildings named after them, but a font is forever, and something that many in this technological age will see. Congratulations on your very own fontday! It doesn't hurt that it is great looking too!
