We ♥︎ St. Johns mural

Next stop for the ongoing mural project is the We ♥︎ St. Johns mural outside the Tulip Pastry Shop on N. Lombard, literally right next door to the Peninsula Station mural we looked at yesterday. No luck searching the interwebs about this one, so this is going to be a rather short post.

Incidentally, I had a bit of trouble adding the heart to the title of this post, since a lot of fonts (OSX Futura among them) don't include a full set of emoji. So technically what you see here is a playing card heart and not an I-wuv-this heart, since the Unicode committee insists they have to be separate characters, and fonts are more likely to contain the playing card one, I think because it's been a defined character for a lot longer.

For emoji characters, check out this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji

To get the heart you are looking for, try ❤️

That is: & # x 2 7 6 4 ; & # x F E 0 F ;

Take out all the spaces between the first ampersand and the last semicolon.

Cheers!
