Experimenting with reverse glyph building (knockouts) to create a modular monoline font with more fluid, rounded shapes. A work in progress. I would appreciate any and all feedback, suggestions, etc.

Oh man! this is lovely, the way you 'cut' the glyphs is outstanding, very creative and strong personality trough the hole font. Love it! :-)

I really love this. Great Q,B,R,a,e,
Unsure of the X though, not keen on the way it touches, maybe something similar to K might work better.

For example. I think version 3 balances better with the other characters.

Nippa! That's wonderful. You've effectively taken the black sheep of the family - the failing pupil - and turned him into an honor student and someone I'd be proud to show around the court. Well done. Big thanks for lending your keen eyes to this project.

Just came across this one... I was actually working on something similar - albeit a lot less useable. Very nice work. I think there's a lot to be explored using the shapes inversely.

Back to the drawing board...

This looks great, the breaks balance really nicely, the parting in the 'B' and 'K's are great and the 'Q' works very well too. I personally like the first 'X' and 'x', I think the break is placed just right, though the current ones are nice too. Perhaps time to make the positive version with the new bricks avaliable.
