I love your illustrations!! They always have such good vibes, and the furry characters are so enjoyable. I was also wondering what fonts you use? In some of your illustrations you re-draw some nice looking retro-ish type of fonts, and I thought I'd ask whether you replicate particular fonts?
Thank you very much! I’m glad to hear that you enjoy my works.
While Helvetica maintains a strong popularity in the 2010s, what really gives it that early 80′s feel is some slightly condensed kerning and the fuzziness that came with earlier typesetting methods. (Font/Image Source)
I also enjoy writing Microgramma, and recently, Eras and Motter Tektura.
When a typeface is handwritten, one’s own affectation is bound to come through, and results will vary. I believe my interest in handwriting typefaces began in middle school, when my art teacher instructed us to refer to the “font book” (an industrial catalog of typefaces) and copy our preferred typeface by sight for a poster assignment. We had desktop publishing by that time, but she came from an era where handwritten typefaces were much more common for things like billboards, signs, banners, etc., in days before large format printers. I suppose it stuck with me.
