Theme: Fonts and Typography • No. 1

January is fonts and typography. I have limited knowledge in this department so I am unsure if I'm doing it properly. I am going get a book or something. Here is my first attempt - "Handwriting". This idea has been done before, but this is just my take on it.

Even though it's super simplified, it started out pretty accurate to how you would make the letters with your hands. But there are a few letters that aren't so realistic. I also should do numbers, maybe later.

I don't know if I will be able to complete a full alphabet everyday but if time and patience allows - I will. Otherwise I just might do words and phrases.

Are you planning to publish it as a font (TTF)? A vector image or a bigger PNG of the full alphabet would be a very interesting alternative :-)

I probably won't publish it as a font at this time. I have to finish the book and put it in there and then maybe I'll release it as an actual font. :)

We are interested in buying the 'finger fonts', how should we go about it?
