Lol! I love this! you found a really creative way to display the type and make it look like an object. I like the color choices as well, it ties in very well with the 'wanted' feel. Though I would like to know if the number on his sign has any meaning XD

All of the information on his sign pertains to information about the typeface. In this case, 1845 was when Clarendon was first developed. Robert Besley of Fann Street Foundry was who created it.

There's quite a bit of digital gunk around the small letters that usually occurs when the compression factor is set too high when saving (some programs prompt you to select this value every time you save; others have an option in the menu for selecting a value, and simply default to a certain value if you hit Save)

The character is very cool; impressive that you made the letters so clear, yet blend so well into a body
