This is an important post for all illustrator or photographers, and I decided to write it because I think it's important to know what I'll write.

It is not uncommon to use the font when we create images.

Usually we use fonts that are on our PC, and this is something "easy" because you may think, are fonts that everyone has on their PC.

I am just wondering if anyone noticed when searching for the last four (from the map) that on the image page of the first found Dorian (retro-style image of a clown) there were all the other three - in the area of similar images. ;-)
