alternate title: cwedit cards :slow:

I got this nifty credit card swiping device that you attach to an iPhone ( so now I can easily/conveniently accept credit cards at the con!! Hooray!! :D It came highly recommended by a couple of my friends, so hopefully I'll have good results with it, too! :fingerscrossed:

Anyhoo, upon receiving it in the mail, I got the idea to make a cute little "I ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS NOW!!" sign. I'm still not sure how the actual sign will look (probably just boring text. haha NO TIME FOR ANYTHING ELSE :crying:) but I had fun making these cutiefied credit card logos! :heart: :la: :meow: I SPENT WAAAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THIS :D :D :D the actual shapes of the cards were not the issue, but rather, since I wanted to use my own font and was still not finished with the bold/fat version, I had to plump up/make most of the letters for this x___x however! at least in good news now I have MOST of the alphabet done for this version of my font! yaaay :phew:

Weird sidenote: While creating this pic, I came upon a STARTLING REVELATION IN KAWAII STUDIES (what) And that is: ITALICIZED TEXT MAKES "CUTE" FONTS LESS CUTE :O Shocking news, I know. :no: hahah But yes, more studies need to be done, but I came to this realization for the first time, when I was doing the lettering for the MasterCard logo, and noticed that when I slanted/italicized my font (as that is how the original is [link]), it went from looking cute (imo) to generic and UNCUTE (again, imo). It was a very interesting transformation! I'm not exactly sure why this is the case, but just off the top of my head all I can think is that SO many popular logos use italicized text, that maybe by association it makes it look generic. I dunno :shrug: I will let you know upon future experiments! :salute:

agghhh still too much preparation. FOUR DAYS LEFT AHHHHH x___x

GOOD TIMES :granny: :slow:

:la: :XD:

I was thinking a fun kawaii-challenged themed club would be to give generic/non-cute logos/characters/etc. a makeover like this! :D I haven't checked if such a thing exists, but if not I'd totally make one! (likeIdon'talreadyhaveenoughdumbprojectstotendto :slow:)

thx!! ^_^ haha I felt silly marking them as "fanart" but I figure that's a pretty accurate description, although I felt like Paris Hilton doing so :P haha

I've seen a couple, but they're like "career AA people" that go to alllll the cons all over the country as their main job. Anyhoo, I dunno if you'll ever be selling at AAs again, but if you ever do and want to accept cards, the device is free and you just pay a per-transaction fee like paypal! (and luckily right now they are having a 1 month free promo, so all the trans I do at kk will be free! :phew:)
