Atrocious penmanship goes digital

While browsing the forums of The Webcomic List, I discovered the greatest thing ever: The Font Generator! Print out a template, write in your letters, scan it, upload it, download the font, install it and you have a font of your own handwriting!! I am amazed!

I had to test the Precocious1 font, of course. (The original Precocious font had a fucked up period . Worst . Period . Ever .) Below you see Precocious strip #20 (2009) with the font treatment. The top image is the original and the Precocious1 font version is on the bottom. You'll have to click on the pictures to see them at actual size. What do you think? Worth trying out? Oh yes, notice how the signature is different? The font page has a space where you can put in your signature, so it can be created with shift+6. Rock on!

By the way, if you want a copy of my font, you can download it here.
