For quite some time I wanted to create art journal pages in Processing. But an essential part of these pages is – the journaling. That meant faking handwritten text and even better – faking writing the text.
This sketch is an attempt to do so. It took quite a while to get the spacing of the text aligned with the writing pencil. But that was quick in comparison to debugging my code. I wanted to publish this 26 hours earlier! Today I was so frustrated searching for the mistakes and correcting them. My expert tried to comfort me (“There are days like this!”) and he saw immediately what had to be done.
