hey, this is my first shot at this. I really wanna know what I am doing right, or wrong...
Its just the lowercase for now, but Im gonna work on the uppercase as soon as I get feedback....
so here's your chance
The blindfold is on, and Im tied to the stake

I'd just like to comment on the "g". Although I love the open-bottom binocular version (like your second one), I think there's some interesting potential in the first one: I haven't seen many examples like that where the tail loops counter-clockwise. But I'd make it a smooth curve that ends when it touches the left side of the loop.

Hi chris

yes there is some beauty inside. But stil need a lot of work.
The 'a': I would prefere the second, the roman, version. Maybe you could try a smaller bowl
The 'c': I always prefer the open characters. Do the same for 'e'
The 'f': like the nice upstem, but the bar isnt at the x-height (also for the 't')
The 'k': hmmm... both dont fit in the font. The first is to straight and second to free...
the 'w': dont use the rotated 'm' its ugly
the stems of v, w, x, y seems to be much bolder
then the other stems

so long :-)

Greetings Jens

Chris -- if anything I would say Cognac needs to be softened just a bit. The corners all seem too sharp. Maybe I'm seeing the "humanist" in it wanting to come out a bit more??

The 'm' and 'n' too.

Do tell, Chris.

This looks like it has some uncial flavorings as well. I'm
talking about the flared terminals throughout and the
a, c, e, y and w in particular.

Maybe you could talk about your inspiration, or where you
hope to take this.
