Nice.
I certainly have a vested interest in "M."
Explain again, if you will, how you are drawing these?

Thanks @AnasaziWrites ! I use ProCreate on the ipad and an ipad pencil. The “nib” I use is a brush based on the Leonardt Principal nib. It’s a great way to practice and do layout which I can then use on a light board with pen and ink. These are the result of hours of play seeing what I can come up with. The nice thing about their execution is that I can make a shade on both downstrokes and upstrokes.

Eventually, I will try to create these same letters using pen and ink. For now, it’s an excellent way to invent new ones, see what is successful, and what isn’t without wasting paper, ink, and nib. Although I know for sure, some of these will never translate to pen and ink.
