It's been longer than usual in creating this one, because it's my largest font yet! 421 glyphs, including A-Z, a-z, 0-9, tons of punctuation, 24 ligature sets, 163 accented characters, entry swash alternates for all uppercase and lowercase letters, exit swash alternates for all lowercase characters ... this sucker has a ton of features!
2016 name change! This font is formerly known as "Spiffy McGee."
All characters were hand-drawn on paper (with a Tombow brush pen), then scanned and imported, then the vectors were cleaned up and smoothed.
Not sure how to access the alternate characters (ligatures, accented characters, dingbats, etc.) in a font?
