A take on modern inktrap typefaces, Capsaicin is a wilder rendition of such a kind. With the liberal use of inktraps and sharp ends, it became like a 'stinger' itself. Capsaicin is a component that can be found in chili peppers, and it causes people's skin to have a burning sensation. Hope this typeface kind of puts that feeling into visuals.

This typeface can be used and modified freely. It can even be used commercially (as it's under the Open Font License)!

Another good news: All my other current published typefaces are also now under the Open Font License! Hope you guys can enjoy them in your own projects! :D

Congrats on the TP! What do you think about this T (it's my only doubt with the font).

Cool inktraps! Nice T, look a bit like a face.

@meek, elmoyenique, swash.buckler, four: Thank you! The reason why I made the T with a 'bum' like that is to ensure that there is equal white spacing at its base. If not, there is this weird 'break' when it combines with other letters, causing a bit of abruption in the text's rhythmic pattern. Here's a look at it based on your suggestion.
