While doodling in class the other night, I started drawing some letters. Today, I decided to sit down and try to draw out an entire alphabet. Basically, I just came up with a small set of rules and tried to follow them.

I'm still not 100% on this, but I'm mostly happy with the letter forms. I'll probably trace this out in Illustrator and turn it into vectors. When I do that, I'll redo the letters I'm not happy with. Will also do some numbers and ! ? ... maybe some other things like & and %
