The concept sketch was drawn on a 5" X 8" sheet of notebook paper.
The sketch was scanned for a template in Illustrator. The letters were drawn using single strokes of the pen tool. The offset path filter was applied to the strokes for the base letterform shapes. I added serifs to the path shapes and adjusted all vertical stroke thickness. Some letters required changes from the original concept sketch.
I eventually drew all the letters needed to build a complete character set and imported each letter to Font Lab Studio for output to OpenType format.
