Sample of my font

I've finally created my own font, using my scanned handwriting as reference. Obviously there are a few issues like spacing between glyphs that need to be refined, but otherwise I'm quite satisfied with the results. It's not pro quality, but then I'm not looking for customers. :-P

Font sample

I used the excellent FontForge tool to create this.

  1. Looks good. Could we see a test comic panel with the old and new fonts to see the difference?

  2. Ray I am just putting some finishing touches and will soon put up the re-lettered version.

  3. Looks good. It gives the comic a more literary feel. I wonder if maybe the format is too short though: if you're going for quick laughs it's fine, but if you want longer running stories, you may need to go with more panels.

  4. Ray, once I get more comfortable with the characters and the storylines, I'll attempt running stories. :)
