A Perfect Question Mark

by Adam on July 25th, 2008

I’m not one who can say they have good penmanship. In fact, my standard speed scrawl is fairly illegible; often even to me. If I slow way down and draw my character forms deliberately things look pretty good but it takes me forever to write anything. This level of penmanship is saved only for Hallmark Cards and when I’m procrastinating.

Today I was making some notes on a printout from a coworker and, at full speed, drew the most perfect question mark ever. I fully suspect it will never be surpassed or even duplicated in my lifetime so I wanted to document the occasion and have it live forever in the annals of the Internet.

PERFECT QUESTION MARK IS PERFECT, BEHOLD!

In all seriousness please submit examples of your savant moments in penmanship. I feel compelled to build a font around this idea, we’ll call it Idiot Savant Script or something.

  1. Congratulations! As weird as it makes me feel saying this, it is a good-looking question mark. I don’t pay much attention to my punctuation but I did feel pretty proud of a perfectly-shaped treble clef I drew a few months ago.

    You know the same thing happened to me? Making beautiful “f”s, just by coincidence, and think it’d never happen again.
    I thought to be the only one thinking about those things!
    Hail to the writer!
