This will be an adventure for me and those of you brave enough to follow. As you see on the header title, I'm a two faced son---whoa. Let's not go there. What I'm trying to say is that I am a photographer exploring the path of a digital designer.

Creating a Font
This the first half of the of the lessons on creating our own font - Uppercase.
I enjoyed making the gliffs, but it's a long meticulous procedure. It took some work and a lot of trial and error to get a brush stroke that I liked and that would also render correctly in the font program. Since this is a jpeg of the font, it doesn't show that in the bolder part of the letter, there is actually a space caused by having two strokes adjacent to each other. I'm in search for Illustrator brushes that similar to a few of my Photoshop brushes to try another font set.
