THIS IS MY THIRD AND FINAL ENTRY TO THE COMPETITION. MY LAST ENTRY WAS GOING TO BE SOMETHING ELSE, BUT THAT GOT TAKEN DOWN FOR RICKROLL-RELATED REASONS.
Reserved font name "Vertalics" (previously known as "Chicken Scratches") was created by and is Copyright Doug Peters 2018, and released as freeware under the SIL Open Font License. It is currently a limited character set novelty font and would require a lot of time and patience to develop it beyond that because of the nature of its design. You are welcome to carry on the work on your own, though I would like credit for the concept, initial design and the working start on it.

My second font of this day. More elaborate and less decorative, but useful for invitations that look like printed with a strange dot matrix printer. So far I've enjoyed using Fontstruct and I'm sure I'll continue this unusual a creative work to make something useful and attractive for everybody who likes to have a choice of fonts on their computer.
This design looks chunky and earthy, as if poked into damp soil with the end of a broken branch.
*Just waving to my friends whose carefully managed wild garden allowed peaceful walks and discovery of nature and self, followed by great food, long discussions and fabulous music* This font was inspired by what I saw in your gardens you worked hard to make look as-wild-as-nature-grows-without-human-interference. I'll add necessary glyphs with diacritics should my friends and families ask for them.
