However, it left not much space inside for any kind of meaningful rendering. Had to quadruple each glyph in order to get enough brick space inside to get some effect going. In the process I came to appreciate the true brilliance of the design and the awesomeness of certain characters. G, for instance.    I have scaled everything up, but have not taken any liberties with the shapes—they are true to the original. If a certain glyph is off, it is due to my ineffective eye and not borne out of a desire to change the original. (Point it out, and I'll correct it). Hope you like it.-----I live in the third-world; it is summer (well, it is here). Consequently, unannounced power outages 2, 5, 8 times a day are standard operating procedure. While/when we have power, my ISP may not. Consequently, unannounced internet outages 3, 4, 7 times a day are standard operating procedure. Out of 24 hours, I get 3, 4 hours of internet access on a good day. Everything everywhere is UPS'd up the wazoo. Still, UPSes need power to recharge. I never know when the computer might shut down or lose the internet connection. Consequently, I have become a master S-pusher. Sorry for the server load, admins. :-)I%20filled%20it%2C%20kix.%20%3A%29%3Cbr%3E-----%3Cbr%3EIt%20appears%20as%20a%20clone%20because%20that%27s%20where%20it%20started%20but%20every%20character%20is%20built%20from%20scratch.%20kix%27%20brilliant%20original%20is%20an%20understatement%20of%20perfection%2C%20using%20the%20least%20amount%20of%20bricks%20for%20such%20a%20grand%20effect.%20However%2C%20it%20left%20not%20much%20space%20inside%20for%20any%20kind%20of%20meaningful%20rendering.%20Had%20to%20quadruple%20each%20glyph%20in%20order%20to%20get%20enough%20brick%20space%20inside%20to%20get%20some%20effect%20going.%20In%20the%20process%20I%20came%20to%20appreciate%20the%20true%20brilliance%20of%20the%20design%20and%20the%20awesomeness%20of%20certain%20characters.%20G%2C%20for%20instance.%3Cbr%3E%26nbsp%3B%26nbsp%3B%26nbsp%3B%26nbsp%3BI%20have%20scaled%20everything%20up%2C%20but%20have%20not%20taken%20any%20liberties%20with%20the%20shapes%E2%80%94they%20are%20true%20to%20the%20original.%20If%20a%20certain%20glyph%20is%20off%2C%20it%20is%20due%20to%20my%20ineffective%20eye%20and%20%3Cu%3Enot%3C%2Fu%3E%20borne%20out%20of%20a%20desire%20to%20change%20the%20original.%20%28Point%20it%20out%2C%20and%20I%27ll%20correct%20it%29.%20Hope%20you%20like%20it.%3Cbr%3E-----%3Cbr%3EI%20live%20in%20the%20third-world%3B%20it%20is%20summer%20%28well%2C%20it%20is%20here%29.%20Consequently%2C%20unannounced%20power%20outages%202%2C%205%2C%208%20times%20a%20day%20are%20standard%20operating%20procedure.%20While%2Fwhen%20we%20have%20power%2C%20my%20ISP%20may%20not.%20Consequently%2C%20unannounced%20internet%20outages%203%2C%204%2C%207%20times%20a%20day%20are%20standard%20operating%20procedure.%20Out%20of%2024%20hours%2C%20I%20get%203%2C%204%20hours%20of%20internet%20access%20on%20a%20good%20day.%20Everything%20everywhere%20is%20UPS%27d%20up%20the%20wazoo.%20Still%2C%20UPSes%20need%20power%20to%20recharge.%20I%20never%20know%20when%20the%20computer%20might%20shut%20down%20or%20lose%20the%20internet%20connection.%20Consequently%2C%20I%20have%20become%20a%20master%20S-pusher.%20Sorry%20for%20the%20server%20load%2C%20admins.%20%3A-%29
