Chicken scratch

The graceful penmanship in Sleepy Hollow (above)

Many people complain that you can never read a doctor's note... well their writing is a cut above the crude lettering of many adults in their early twenties. Twitter, texting, and email have made the days of handwritten letters a begone era. Escaping from the grey chill of the outdoors I indulged in my annual Tim Burton collection and watched an Angela Lansbury inspired performance by Johnny Depp. A beautifully designed film that must have employed a very gifted artist with a light flourish of the wrist.
