My furtive start at a new font
0

Well, I threatened a while ago on my blog that I might do this. So far, I'm really just starting. I've converted my drawn "a" and "b" to decent shapes and I'd like some feedback as to whether I should keep going.

It's hard to say anything just with 'a' and 'b', but maybe you should think about 'cleaning' the shapes... ;-)

I'd say the same as the other typophile member: keep going to see more of that style.

In case anyone is curious, I've followed the advice of the posters, and stopped autotracing my sketches. I'm working slowly at this and hope to have my hamburgefonstiv and/or a complete basic alphabet by the end of March. Type design is fairly low priority at the moment, with a 20-month-old girl and another child on the way. Life's too short not to spend time with my wife and children when I have the time.

But this "Furtive" font continues to elude my grasp... I'm at around 1/2 way through redrawing my sketches into vectorized, TTF form...

Keep going metalfoot... I'm in the same state with my first attempt... I have three letters though :P

Look forward to seeing more letters!
