Hi I am new here because by chance I saw your question. I have used Fontographer to create my own fonts from drawings and it is easy and free. It will work with W7, I think. You need a painting /graphic program to create tiny drawings of each…Continue

Dear Yvonne Kettner, really interesting work and I think could be called asemic.

Here is a question that comes up A LOT in vispo & asemics, no kidding:

Are those pieces upside down?

Should they appear at AF2 exactly as they appear below.

Again, thx

I posted selections from the JMB & Adam Roussopoulos collabs at AF2, Again, thx for sharing. I'll keep documenting.

Made some asemic writing ( well, I hope this counts as asemic) and couldn’t stop ;)

Darest Mel Blanc,

A component of asemics is exploring the "unintelligible," "illegible," "incomprehensible," and "unreadable."

Your proving to be a beacon of incomprehensibility. Thx so much for sharing and feel free to share more.

Callisemics no. 2

Comment by De Villo Sloan on February 24, 2021 at 4:51pm

Darest Adam & John, thanks so much for sharing these with the group! I spied them earlier on FB and was totally impressed. Wonderful!

And Daniel de Culla accidentally posted a greeting card in the group. That's ok but this group tries to focus on visual poetry and asemics.

There is a special SSP (Shameless Self Promotion) group at IUOMA for sharing work of this nature.

I like these very, very much Adam and John.
