blind lettering!

Fontstruct is fun, but square. Time to break out of the grid.
Let’s play a game.
The tools: paper, a pencil or a brush and a free mind.
The rules: put the point of your pencil somewhere on the paper. Visualise the limits of your sheet of paper. Then close your eyes and draw a letterform. Use the whole field and make broad, clear strokes. No hesitation and no peeping. Open your eyes when finished.
If what you see provokes a smile, you are allowed a fresh cup of coffee. Next sheet. After 5 cups, replace the coffee by chocolate bars: too much coffee is not good for you.  Every 10th reward is replaced by a fresh pint of beer. If you keep smiling at every new try, stop playing: too much beer is not good for your judgment. Continue tomorrow.
Happy blind lettering!
