What's My Type?

Today I designed a font based on my comic book lettering style. I tested it out in Manga Studio EX and it's fairly accurate to my hand printing. I'll start using it in the next installment of Streams.

I used a typeface design program called Font Creator 5.5, which is easy to learn and relatively inexpensive. If you can afford it, get the Professional Edition; the auto kerning feature is worth it.
