    From a technical standpoint, it's not very well executed. I think it would have been more successful if you had started with an image of a surfer and morphed/added the skateboarder to it. As it is there...

    Yep.
    Real-world pen/ink-on-paper drawing skill is what you need.


    As for the style--the 1960s was quite possibly the most broad era of advertising illustration...

    Love the 5 bottles, I've decided my problem is I only like "K"s in a serif font because I like that last treatment a lot. I think you did a really good job.

    Hi everyone, I have a question for you.

    I'm taking a Typography class this semester at school and there is a pretty hefty list of required fonts for the course. The teacher told us to go to the Mac lab at school and grab the fonts from there. The problem is that I do not have a Mac. When I, along with a little less than half of my class, tried to explain this to the teacher we basically got chastised for working on PCs. Now, I've heard of Mac to PC font converters and found a few freeware ones online, but none of them would convert the Mac font files I have on my PC now. I wasn't sure if there was maybe a converter I could buy that anyone might know of. Any help would be extrememly appreciated as an assignment that requires several of the fonts is due on Tuesday! Ahhh!

    ps...the mac font files I have on my PC now are LWFNs and FFILs

    I don't know about a convertor, but shame on that teacher for being so narrow minded.
    Ask her if apple as made a tabletpc for designers, with built in wacom pressure sensitivity, or if the majority of the population, which you will receive files from when you are a designer use macs.
    Grrrr. Fight back, it's her job to teach you how to deal with this kind of issue.

        Fontographer is another. But it's even more expensive.
        Check out FontLab.com to try the demo for TransType before you buy.
