Hand-drawn Fonts.

I'm in this month's Computer Arts projects waffling on about why I love a hand-drawn letterform. You can probably imagine what I'm saying, but the frustrated writer in me is particularly proud of this line:

'Where a neat and symmetrical slab font might be a robust march, a script typeface is a ballet, controlled and learned but full of expression and surprises'.
(I'm repeating this line because it's mis-printed in the article - they wrote 'serif font' instead, which doesn't make sense!)

Here's the article next to the original artwork.

I'm in the next issue as well, the Illustration edition, talking about being a pen-and-ink perv. Again...
