t.@.L.L. Log 10-3-17 : Having Fun with Fonts

Hello, it’s been a while since I last posted anything here.

As mentioned I’m on break from painting but I’ve kept myself busy on other projects.  One of them I’ll explain here:  font creation!

Yes, I’ve gotten into creating my own fonts, and it’s amazing how easy it is.

This friendly tutorial takes you step by step of making your own font sets using Adobe Illustrator and FontForge, a free open-source font generating program.  Many props to the writer, Mary Winkler, who designed this tut:

Now onto few screenshots of my latest endeavor:

As the above text reads, my first and newest font creation is titled MANGO! In honor of my cute feathery friend of the same name who gives me joy and headache on daily basis.

Try it, you’ll like it!
