ABOUT







Metaphase Brothel Graphix

bobistheowl (lower case b) is the Ontario-based designer of the dingbat fonts HaydenPanettiereBats (2007, about 30 headshots of Hayden Panettiere) and LaetitiaBats1 and 2 (2007, based on images of Corsican supermodel Laetitia Casta). He also digitized the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot (copyright Pamela Colman Smith for The Rider Company, 1909) in 2007 as Gypsy-Tarot-Major-Arcana, Gypsy-Tarot-Minor-Arcana, Gypsy-Tarot-Minor-Arcana-Inverted. Other fonts: Through the Looking Glass (2007, based on images dating from 1871 by Sir John Tenniel for the first Edition of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There), Alice in Wonderland (2007, based on Sir John Tenniel's 1865 illustrations of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland), Apoux (2007, a digitization of the naughty all-caps collection of letters by Joseph Apoux, ca. 1880, called Alphabet Pornographique), KleinKarpets (2007, a snake skin-based geometric pattern font dedicated to Manfred Klein), AmyBats 1 though 4 (2008, Amy Winehouse scanbats), JessicasSoftballFont (2008, softball scanbats), GrimNatwickBettyBoop (2008, a Betty Boop dingbat font), Obey (2009---a huge family of scanbats), SINSofBOBCO (2008, a one glyph font made for Bob Dobbs), Woodland Creatures (2008, forest animals), Princess Madeleine of Sweden (2008). In 2010, he added FixCystNeon, a typeface that emulates Terminal, the 1981 IBM systems font.

In 2012, he made MockingJay XL (a single glyph dingbat face), Outstanding (a Victorian caps set that looks like a rounded version of Ernst Voelker's Vineta (1973)), and Beauty Marks (an erotic silhouette scanbat font).

In 2016, he finally published Cabbagetown, which he started in 2014. Cabbagetown is based on Light Shade (1874, Richard Smith). It later appeared in Dan X. Solo's The Solotype Catalog of 4,147 Display Typefaces on page 17 as Night Shade. The first known digital version of this typeface was Nigel SadeSH (1993, Soft Horizons). Other versions include Shadowed Serif (1994, James Fordyce), Cameo Antique (2009, by Character), and Outstanding (2012, Bobistheowl).
