quirky

I made this font in December of 2013. It is not truly handwritten but has an artificial handwritten style (originally designed in Inkscape with the pen tool). I do release my fonts for free on such sites as Dafont...so I am aware they are not super professional looking. However, I would like to update my fonts -one at a time- and make them better.

I want to keep the font true to its original style/personality, but I'd like to tweak it a bit and make it even better. I will definitely be improving the kerning.

I would appreciate any constructive feedback. Thanks!

(I am not sure if I can attached or link to the font file itself for further analyzing?)

Hello everybody,

I've been reading a lot about typefaces and how different kinds can be combined in order to create layers of meaning. Type foundries usually suggest pairings for their own fonts, most notably Hoefler & Frere Jones and Font Bureau. I am looking to create an unusual mix of moods for a personal branding project:

- Hearty, friendly
- Weird, quirky
- Contemplative, dramatic

You can think of this mix as the equivalent of a Wes Anderson, Sylvain Chomet, or even a Spike Jonze film. Sort of like what film critic Peter Rainer writes about Spike Jonze's film, Being John Malkovich:
“It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.”

For quite some time I thought this was custom made.
I know now this is a typeface.
Please identify it.
Thank you for your time.

saw this on a draft of a poster for sint lucas "bold italic" 2008
