As two or three people have expressed interest and encouragement with this project, I can easily say that is my most anticipated font to date.  ;)

I renamed it and smoothed out its pixelated origins.  I hope you like it.  If you use it, I'd love to hear about it (but that's not required).

OK, July 4th (USA's Independence Day) 2014 and I'm going to release/publish it.  I still have some characters to smooth the jagies out of, but all of the upper and lower case basic latin letter set characters are done, and some of the punctuation, as well (the same punctuation as the preview I released with the upper case letters).  Happy Birthday, U.S.!

Of course, it's not done yet.  Right now the Basic Latin letterset and the © are done.  I think the TM, TEL and SM symbols, and perhaps my logo.  But I wanted to make sure that a couple of people knew I was working on it.

The numbers are simple cards with dots because I am still using this font to protest our poor education system, and how my son works way too hard at math in order to learn because we teach our kids so terribly poorly (which is why we rank so poor in education against the rest of the world, and why we have so many ignorant people in America).%3Cp%3EClone%20of%20Sketchy%20%5Bthe%20font%20here%20was%20previously%20named%20Zmoothed%20Zketchy%20%26%20%27Zketchy%20Zmoothed%20Caps%20%28Preview%29%27%20was%20spawned%20from%20it%2C%20but%20I%20decided%20I%20liked%20%27Sketchy%20Ink%27%20to%20make%20it%20a%20sort%20of%20family%20name%5D.%3C%2Fp%3E%0D%0A%0D%0A%3Cp%3EAs%20two%20or%20three%20people%20have%20expressed%20interest%20and%20encouragement%20with%20this%20project%2C%20I%20can%20easily%20say%20that%20is%20my%20most%20anticipated%20font%20to%20date.%20%20%3B%29%3C%2Fp%3E%0D%0A%0D%0A%3Cp%3EI%20renamed%20it%20and%20smoothed%20out%20its%20pixelated%20origins.%20%20I%20hope%20you%20like%20it.%20%20If%20you%20use%20it%2C%20I%27d%20love%20to%20hear%20about%20it%20%28but%20that%27s%20not%20required%29.%3C%2Fp%3E%0D%0A%0D%0A%3Cp%3EOK%2C%20July%204th%20%28USA%27s%20Independence%20Day%29%202014%20and%20I%27m%20going%20to%20release%2Fpublish%20it.%20%20I%20still%20have%20some%20characters%20to%20smooth%20the%20jagies%20out%20of%2C%20but%20all%20of%20the%20upper%20and%20lower%20case%20basic%20latin%20letter%20set%20characters%20are%20done%2C%20and%20some%20of%20the%20punctuation%2C%20as%20well%20%28the%20same%20punctuation%20as%20the%20preview%20I%20released%20with%20the%20upper%20case%20letters%29.%20%20Happy%20Birthday%2C%20U.S.%21%3C%2Fp%3E%0D%0A%0D%0A%3Cp%3EOf%20course%2C%20it%27s%20not%20done%20yet.%20%20Right%20now%20the%20Basic%20Latin%20letterset%20and%20the%20%C2%A9%20are%20done.%20%20I%20think%20the%20TM%2C%20TEL%20and%20SM%20symbols%2C%20and%20perhaps%20my%20logo.%20%20But%20I%20wanted%20to%20make%20sure%20that%20a%20couple%20of%20people%20knew%20I%20was%20working%20on%20it.%3C%2Fp%3E%0D%0A%0D%0A%3Cp%3EThe%20numbers%20are%20simple%20cards%20with%20dots%20because%20I%20am%20still%20using%20this%20font%20to%20protest%20our%20poor%20education%20system%2C%20and%20how%20my%20son%20works%20way%20too%20hard%20at%20math%20in%20order%20to%20learn%20because%20we%20teach%20our%20kids%20so%20terribly%20poorly%20%28which%20is%20why%20we%20rank%20so%20poor%20in%20education%20against%20the%20rest%20of%20the%20world%2C%20and%20why%20we%20have%20so%20many%20ignorant%20people%20in%20America%29.%3C%2Fp%3E

This is just a preview of my Sketchy Ink (just the caps), which is a smoothed version of my Sketchy pixel font (with this one I used more than just the square blocks and tried to smooth it out a bit).  

There are still some quirky kinks, but I find them appealing.

Tell me if I should keep at it, or not.

Just to be clear, I renamed this font from 'Zketchy Zmoothed Caps (Preview)' to 'Sketchy Smoothed Caps (Preview)'.  It was cloned from 'Sketchy Ink', which used to be named 'Zketchy Zmoothed' when it was private, and that in turn was cloned from my pixel font, 'Sketchy'.  

Now that 'Sketchy Ink' is publicly available freeware, this preview all caps font is simply redundant and incomplete.  You may as well download or clone 'Sketchy Ink' and use that one, unless you don't want all the lowercase letters.  I still have some dingbats to smooth in 'Sketchy Ink', but all the letters are done.

My theme word was 'chaos' I began exploring the meaning of this word. This led to several experiments exploring how I could use marks or patterns to express chaos. My favourite experiment used the stencil of the letter and then used drops of ink, the negative space of the letter was left once the stencil was removed and surrounding this were random drops of ink. Each letter was therefore unique so there was already an element of chaos in the typeface, but I also felt the effect of ink created an energetic feeling which felt chaotic.
