King Basil Font

Introducing King Basil (formerly known as Spiffy McGee, before he ascended to the throne), my largest font yet! 421 glyphs, including A-Z, a-z, 0-9, tons of punctuation, 24 ligature sets, 163 accented characters, entry swash alternates for all uppercase and lowercase letters, exit swash alternates for all lowercase characters … this sucker has a ton of features!

All characters were hand-drawn on paper (with a Tombow brush pen), then scanned and imported, then the vectors were cleaned up and smoothed.
