14 Free Brush Script Fonts

14 Free Brush Script Fonts • Little Gold Pixel

We stayed in a hotel in San Francisco that had typed passages from On the Road for wallpaper. When we arrived home, I felt inspired to round up my favorite free brush scripts and share them with you, beatnik style.

That was more than two months ago. This post has been sitting here for a long time. It’s one of those posts that started taking shape in one place, got a little steam in another and is finally coming to fruition in yet another.

Deciphering: Yes, we moved.

But that’s not all: I’ve officially gone entrepreneur.

I’m following my own arrow! This is probably the ONLY thing I have in common with Kerouac (whose name I absolutely butchered loudly and proudly in Philosophy 101 back in the day).

After all, I’m not a restless soul who flits back and forth across the map, at least not often. But I am committed to my craft. Jack had spontaneous prose; I have Little Gold Pixel and you.

As always, I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a line with any suggestions on blog content, any projects you’d like to collaborate on, any favorite passages featuring Dean Moriarty.

Here’s my favorite quote of all time, also a printable in the shop:

What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.

Democracy Is the Worst Free Art Printable

Democracy Is the Worst Free Art Printable • Little Gold Pixel

I just filled out my mail-in ballot.

This election cycle has been the absolute worst. The most anxiety-inducing, infuriating, let’s-move-to-Canada presidential election I’ve had the horror of witnessing. And I thought it couldn’t get any worse than 2000.

It pains me that is has been so terrible because I usually love politics. Fun fact: I minored in political science in college.

I can only assume that most of the American public feels as exhausted by the whole thing as I do. Take solace, then, in this political sentiment:

It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government … except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.

Winston Churchill said this in speech, but obviously he wasn’t the first person to make the observation (evidenced by the “it has been said”).

Anyway, it’s free for the taking. Put it on your screens for Election Day, print it out and cry. Just fill your glasses to the brim on Tuesday night and try not to have a panic attack.

And VOTE. Yes. Vote.
