I’ve been experimenting with custom hand lettering for a couple years now and for a recent projet I was asked to create a series of illustrations depicting different times of the day and week. For some projects I use “standard” fonts, for others I use fonts that I have bought from other people but for this project all but one or two of the illustrations below use fonts that I created myself.
Custom hand lettering fonts do take a while to create but they look so much better than fonts found on the internet. One of my first ever illustration projects was to create a space alphabet and while I wil always have a fondness for that project, both my illustration and hand lettering skills have improved infinitely so when I have more time I may create another alphabet. Or I may create another map with hand lettering or maybe even do something else.
