Last week, I participated in Doctor Popular’s 4 hour font battle.

Using Yourfonts.com we all made a typeface, in 4 hours.

Here’s what I did:

Comic Serif

Alas, I was not triumphant in this battle of fonts.
It made me make my own typeface though, which I’ve been meaning to do for years.
I’m interested in making something without time limits sometime, but it will have to wait for a bunch of my other projects to be finished first!

You can read the results here.
& download everyone’s fonts here.

    For a four-hour challenge that’s an awesome result! I can’t wait to see what you produce when you have more time!

    Hot Damn! That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

    I love the tail on the lowercase q… and the uppercase Q. And your figures are absolutely charming. Kinda reminds me of Chank’s Mister Frisky (http://www.chank.com/font_detail.php?sku=5195). But yours is so definitively Miss Star. =)

    I love it! I am going to use it to make you a thing, perhaps…

    I actually dig this font quite a bit. Do you happen to know what licensing the fonts were released under?

    Gosh darn it, I liked it so much I used it again… In a much better project this time. It’s a mini comic called Matching Tattoos! Checky checky: http://jolieodell.wordpress.com/2009/02/04/comic-book/

    Love you, Lady Dude! And I miss you lots.

    Hello webmaster
    I would like to share with you a link to your site
    write me here preonrelt@mail.ru

  9. I know it was a friendly competition and all, but I think this is clearly the best of the four fonts. At least, it’s the one I would (and might) actually use.
