Celeb Graphology (High School Musical Edition)
Ashley Tisdale basically is Sharpay Evans... smart (look at the complexity of the “A”), original (that is a completely original variant on an uppercase “A”, as far as I know), with a stubborn streak (the sharp up and down strokes at the end), good at keeping secrets (covering strokes) and a perfectionist (the covering strokes are intended to conceal that she used two pen strokes, not just one).
Some regard Sharpay as a “villain”, but I love Sharpay, so from me, the comparison is a compliment.
I honestly did not expect this, but Zac Efron is also very similar to Troy Bolton. I have never seen a celebrity autograph with this much anxiety in it (one of Troy’s defining characteristics), as indicated by the shakiness. There are indications of OCD (something I have) in repeating the “Z” rather than writing an “E”, and in very careful attempts at symmetry.
In addition, Efron identifies strongly with his mother (she defined his values- the upper zone is the superego, and it’s round, feminine loops), and has a feminine side (the reversed lower zone loop that results from using a “Z”, not an “E”), but just as Troy is uncomfortable with that side of himself (”dancing”, metaphorically), so is Zac.
The lower zone in the second “Z” does not reach the middle zone (a trait in my writing, and also Tesla’s), possibly indicating asexual tendencies, but his first “Z” does not show this trait, so it could be “gray” or in “flux”.
So much like Troy, Zac is trying very hard to deal with conflicting feelings and pressures, and is a bundle of nerves as a result- he would fit in here on Tumblr.
Vanessa Hudgens is intelligent (complexity and originality), but semi-abstract in her thinking (hence so in her writing) and very much a full-time method actor, consciously or not.
This autograph is from 2014 or earlier, and everything about it is related either to music (symbols resembling notes and clefs) or basketball (the loop at the end looks like a basket against an “H” backboard), the two main subjects of the HSM trilogy.
Kenny Ortega is a genius of the first rate. The way he ties together so many loops in a complicated yet neat pattern is amazing.
This signature is also a look inside his creative process. He starts at the ending of the signature, and likewise starts with a finished idea of how the story will resolve itself, working out the story that led up to it later- that’s how he was able to do rewrites in the HSM trilogy without hurting the finished product.
The large capital letters show confidence, which would be a necessity in his profession.
