Joshua wrote the alphabet his own way. Straight caps. The hard angles, he rounded, as in "A." The smooth curves, as in "O" and "S," he bent into angles. He used as many different letters of the alphabet as possible when he wrote this way, to clean out the system. But he used block letters – as common and ordinary as his extra-creative li'l brain could cough up – when he wrote on the bathroom wall. This was the work he wanted to lend a more general, impersonal bent. This wasn't about his signature, his oppressive ego. This was for the people.
