An avantgarde serif with a mild horror theme. It takes advantage of the properties of antialiasing/text smoothing algorithms to render a convincingly handmade aesthetic.

Making attractive, consistent, nonpixel serif designs at this grid size is quite a challenge. Making them look handmade is even moreso. I've tried that many times, but this design is the first such one I felt was truly usable. It doesn't quite look typewriter-esque, but blends well with other designs that are.

For this I used many different serif shapes, with each one depending on how the line it was attached to wanted to bend or terminate. This is in contrast to most other serif designs I've seen, in which the serifs themselves are more consistent in shape. I decided against faux-bezier curves for this, because they all looked way too polygonal. I think this is one of few cases where a rectangular O and S enhance the overall design rather than weakening it.
