DEVELOPER'S NOTE

To the extent that the “vaguely wobbly font with vertical lines inside it, fading from either the top or bottom” is a font genre, this is my hat in that particular ring. As usual, I've followed some of the rules and ignored others … the forms are more regular than most, the fading lines a little more “Uresia mapping” and a little less “Monster Mash, ” and the whole thing is a bit on the jaunty side.

That part's important. While many of my fonts come from some specific graphic-project need or honor some particular person, this font sprung from a mood, and not a particularly good one. Without getting too deep into the details, there was some trouble recently between Friend A and Friend B. A hurt B (and in the process, hurt a lot of the rest of us) and for a time it was necessary that I focus on the needs of Friend B without indulging too deeply in how I now felt about Friend A. Last night I finally started indulging, and tallying what I've personally lost to to the harmful act of Friend A (Acquaintance A, right now).

The thing is, being grouchy put me in a mood where I needed to make something that wasn't grouchy at all. I needed something playful, something punchy, something bold and bright and upbeat. This font is all that, which just goes to show that a grouchy energy can be reflected back into something positive. While I'm not sure what you'd license this font for (a halloween party for fifth-graders? A particularly lighthearted bar-band poster?), I hope it gives you a grin either way. It did the trick for me, and kept me company on a night when I needed some. And for my next trick, I'll be finishing a big font project to honor and celebrate Friend B properly (I've been working on it for months, it's just finally coming together). SHOCK SHIMMY is a full-keyboard small-caps set with some of the usual extras. Enjoy!
