Artist and educator Jesse England showcases his latest creation, the Sincerity Machine, a typewriter where the font has been changed to "the most popularly despised font of modern times": Comic Sans.

Sincerity Machine: The Comic Sans typewriter was made after viewing a document with a typewriter font present in it; I realized there was nothing stopping me from altering a typewriter to write in a different font. I used a laser engraving machine to etch new letters out of acrylic, and glued them onto the strikers of a 70's era, Sears-branded Brother Charger 11 typewriter, which I found in the street a couple years ago. I also used a vinyl cutter to make new key covers as well.
