Come Into Sight 109

From Nowhere

LetteringThe artist introduces his paintwork, "Therefore people make all kinds of excuses." At this point, he has already drawn out a ladder like frame across the top of the board. The swollen crowd presses forward to see what he is doing. Silence settles and then a gasp as suddenly letters begin to appear. Two strokes of the brush and a letter C comes into sight. Another deft cut and there is a letter U. So he completes the ladder letter words. "Some people find excuses for not going to school, not going to the dentist and not leaving the party early. Some find excuses for not believing in...." Meanwhile, a green hill and the outline of a cloud above it appear. More words pour out, this time in ordinary writing. "I'M TOO" then more ladder lettering. "Some people race through life thinking only of their own pleasure, they are fun-seekers." The letters for the word "FUN" come into sight to the right of the ladder.✞
