Blade Runner Update: May 26, 2015

The total is now 210 symbols! I finally recreated the Ennis house tile – that was quite tedious. I also added a bunch of odds & ends from a piece of custom rub-down lettering that Tom Southwell had made for BR, and posted to PropSummit. Got a few mystery names on it, too: Nancy, Fritz, Aggie(?). Tom Southwell stated that “Nik-O-Sey” was indeed a reference to Tom Nikosey, as I had suspected. Aggie may be a reference to ‘agate,’ an obscure unit of typographical measurement. There appears to be no “Fritz” in the cast & crew…

I’ve essentially completed my Metrokab card. Just been waffling on a color choice for some of the graphics…

I think my next ‘hypothetical’ project will be a parking receipt.
