Here are some screen caps of my process (so far) for making the type in each of my maze illustrations. I’ve done this for every one of the illustrations, but just showing examples from the first (Eagle Island).
For one of the types of type you see, I traced (attempting to be at least a little loose/sketchy) a print-out of the typeface called Plantagenet Cherokee. That’s the one that has more serifs (more turns on the edges). That was used for both the title and the instructions that I show in these screenshots. The other, more “plain” looking typeface is my own natural way of writing, traced over a print-out of the Plantagenet Cherokee. Right now I’m not completely sure which one I prefer; might have slight preference to my own writing right now.
As you can also see, there are variances in the spacing between letters and between lines. That is something I am still trying to make a final decision on.
