An alphabet - sketch 1

A family commission, not sure what I'm going to make out of these 28 chaps.

An alphabet - ink 2 + detail (E-H)

I for one welcome our new robot typeset.

If you have any ideas for machine/robot details, let me know. I'm running out of variance!

An alphabet - ink 3

Sorry, forgot to remove the pencil marks on the new letters.


An alphabet - ink 6 + detail (YZ-&)

Not yet finished! I'll add some shading to round this off.

An Alphabet - ink & watercolor (commission)

I decided to go with a blueish shading and front lighting. This was a fun project, and a nice opportunity to use many reference pictures I took last week.

@lordampersand I love this font and I am thinking hard about where I would use it, (how will it be available?).

@me Thank you! I used to do fonts in the mid-90s, so I might publish this as an OTF if there's any interest. As this is a commission, I'll also need to ask my client first if that's ok for them.

@lordampersand Oh yeah, that looks great! Like the subtile colour too.

@lordampersand I thought it was cool before the shading, and I like it even more afterwards.
