The Result Speaks for Itself

it speaks for itself

When I was a kid, we still had handwriting as part of the school curriculum. Although it wasn’t my favorite class, I think I did come away with some good, fine motor skills and decent penmanship – even if it ended up being printed and in all caps.

Still, there’s something about that lovely line of great cursive. And one day, I had the idea of using it in a line graph and this cartoon came out.

I did have to go back to see how to make that darned capital G and it took a good dozen attempts before I got things looking the way I wanted, but it was worth it.
