I turned my handwriting into a font! My friend and fellow cartoonist Simon Fraser recommended this last year, and I finally got around to doing it! I've been told that the computer fonts I use as a short-cut on my mini comics don't fit with the hand drawn comic. The current comic I'm drawing ("Apartment Hunt") has LOTS of text, so this is a good time to test it out.
There are free sites that turn your handwriting into a font like http://www.myscriptfont.com/ Print out the sheet, write in the boxes, scan, upload, and voila! It did take 2 tries to tweak some weird letters, but the final result is awesome! I'll save tons of time but it'll have the warmer look of writing by hand! Also thinking about making an Aer Head font. I do pride myself on the fact that that comic is all done by hand, but as I get busier and time slips away, it's best to utilize tools like this!
