Beautifully controlled handwriting. The blob is done to perfection; the glyphs are distinctive and varied and the hint of 'going off the grid' give the handmade notion that much more credence. The simplicity of the sample shouts that nothing apart from typing is required to get a handmade sign. Awesome, aphoria. (I mean the last sentence in both sense, i.e. with and without comma).

Aside from all the (necessarily) vertical strokes, superb grid busting technique for that handmade look. I think the Ss would benefit from two more points apiece, or more of a reversed Z shape akin to pieces of your exquisite &. Yet they’re quite distinctive so don’t change it just for me – perhaps some alternates?

Thank you thalamic and will.i.ૐ. Your compliments are very much appreciated.

As for the s, I did originally have two more points in it, but I thought it looked to stiff. Your suggestion may have given me an idea though that I'll try to explore as an alternate. Thanks! :)

very nice. it has an easy-going relaxed feel. the angles work well and gives it a non-fontstructed look. well done.
