I have deaf friends and once "tuned out" all background noise while writing notes with them. They did not sign but read lips and could "speak" if you knew them and how they said things. Deaf from birth is a hard one, as they don't know if they are saying things correctly. They sound a bit mentally challenged, and usually have fiery tempers
I love your afghan. That was a lot of work to create! I can sign the alphabet, but am very slow at it. I have watched the interpreters in my church, and man can they go fast!
There is a Jeff Dunham clip where he talks about a deaf group that came to his show. He is a ventriloquist with puppets I wonder how that worked out? They had an interpreter, so they still got his jokes.
Very nice work. I love the colors. And your top left and bottom right panels really set it off. I love how you did the "J" with the swoop arrow. A lot of thought went into making this, I am sure. I am rocking you.
Oops. The "Z" also has the motion arrow. wonderful.
