Custom, handmade font


I read a blog post by Sacha Chua who made their own font for use on their blog, and was inspired to make my own. And you're reading it now!

The post I read used a bunch of different programs and tweaks to do it properly, but I just located an iPad app that lets me draw the characters using my pen. Didn't take many minutes, and it looks fairly accurate. I should tweak the kerning, I suppose, but I'll leave that for another day.

I think this is also the first version of the blog with automagic dark mode in browsers that support it. Needs more tweaking too, but it's a start.
