Hiya Folks...

I've made a handtooled version of Clarendon Condensed for you to download and use as you see fit. Download the high-res version from:

I've recently discovered a magnificent occupation for savvy artists. It's the field of 'Graphic Facilitation'. I recommend that you look into this as a way of making real money from your art.

Just to give you an idea, I've hit the ground running, and am charging from R8500 to R12500 per day or part thereof. This translates to around US$1000 or GB£700 roughly. Not bloody bad, huh? And real fun!

Check out my visual facilitation set on Flickr: http://snipurl.com/visualfacilitation.

Nice handtooled Alphabets. Do you allow commercial use? I would be using the stencils as just that, and then making my derivative work from there. Do let me know. I am new to the forums and suppose I would ask all about commercial use before downloading.

Interesting on the Graphic Facilitator! Making a visual workflow -- hmm... and visual notes (!) so help people make a decision. How does one go about doing this? Congrats on your prosperity and for sharing!

Hiya Randi...

Please go ahead and use the font however you see fit. You're welcome to make money from it. The more the better!!!

To find out more about visual facilitation, head for my set on the Flickr gallery I've set up. The snipurl is in my signature. I've got some links there to resources.

Also, do a Google on the terms 'visual facilitation', 'graphic facilitation', 'visual recording', 'graphic recording'.

There are stacks of resources around. Not a lot of people do this. But it's fairly 'easy' to get into. Go and volunteer at some not-for-profits, and take your Moleskine or other sketchbook along. Do some trial runs for yourself. Get feedback.

Once you're confident that you've got something viable to offer, you're pretty much on the road.

Good luck!

Blue skies, love, Roy

Roy this is just so cool! I love Clarendon anyhooooo and now this! Can't wait to play with it! I agree - I would LOVE more alpha stencils....I am in alpha mood lately..perhaps I'll work up a few plain stencils for general consumption if I get the chance. Thanks so much for sharing!

Thanks for the positive feedback! If anyone knows how to turn the font into an actual font, that would be great!

Blue skies
