My most recent debacle is no longer a tragedy thanks to Sed4tives (Thanks!). ;)
I made an extra long space in Specials so that the line height and/or leading would work out with the 2x2 blocks (at least, in Fonstruct previews).
The idea is to have a spinning ying-yang symbol as the pattern to qualify it as a counter. Plus, it's a container, using the negative space where the pattern is broken-up, to define the characters. I also used mini ying-yang symbols to round some of the edges, or perhaps to define a boundry that required it.
An experiment to see how good of a hex grid I could make with just the hex brick. Answer: Pretty good!
(Use _ for the blank grid.)
This is capable of some pretty convincing "TV static" type effects, too!
DANGER: ENTERING DIAGONAL ZONE! Unless you're a glyph. Then you only get to use 90-degree angles!
(Use _ for empty space.)
Just a doodle. Reminds me of typesetter's forms.
Every pixel of the negative space is trying to approach the letters in the positive space. But, they are repelled from the letters by a 1px border. This leads to a look that is not quite filled, not quite grunge, and not quite maze-like. The filled voids seem obviously anomalous, but can only reinforce the forms they attempt to engulf.
"Tacit Affront" is an anagram for "Artifact Font".
Very distantly inspired by "MS Micro~Ish" by Isaiah Garcia which was extended and published by Dmitriy Sychiov as "Microish C".
Some alternates of UC glyphs are on their corresponding LC. No numbers yet, they'll be done later.
