Carl Friedrich Gauss just signed matthen's Tumblr!
Matthen: "I just made this animation tracing out a copy of Gauss's signature he wrote in a book when he was 17. Quite fantastic and elaborate! Perhaps he just wanted to make it difficult for me. Gauss is somewhat of a legend in the history of maths. Reblog this and he’ll be signing your blog too!”
Here is the original signature.

Quimby’s comic store in Chicago opened it’s doors in 1991. Coincidently sharing a name with Chris Ware’s character Quimby the Mouse, then-owner Steven Svymbersky asked Chris to design signage for the store featuring his character. Since then, the store has produced many items featuring Chris’s logo. This patch was released in 2011 during the store’s 20th anniversary year.
