A pixel-city. That means it is a pixelated city. A city that is made of pixels. PIXELS, not bricks.
The letters are as follows:
C--Building cluster 1
E--Building cluster 2
F--Building cluster 3
H--Building cluster 4
N--Plain building #2
O--Plain Building #3
S--Burned-down building 2
T--Space Needle (creds to my friend)
I'll probably add more buildings. Maybe another factory... I dunno.

Destroyed techno typeface. I've spent on it about two days.
Use it everywhere you want, but I would be delighted seen my nick somewhere ;].

ASL is not a written language, but this font should, hopefully, assist anyone wishing to learn ASL.
The following is a quote from Wikipedia:
"American Sign Language (or ASL, Ameslan) is the dominant sign language of the Deaf community in the United States, in the
English-speaking parts of Canada, and in some regions of Mexico. Although the United Kingdom and the United States share English as a
spoken and written language, British Sign Language (BSL) is quite different from ASL, and the two sign languages are not mutually
ASL is often written with English words in all capital letters, which is known as glossing. This is, however, a method used simply to teach
the structure of the language. ASL is a visual language, not a written language. There is no one-to-one correspondence between words in
ASL and English, and much of the inflectional modulation of ASL signs is lost.
There are two true writing systems in use for ASL: a phonemic Stokoe notation, which has a separate symbol or diacritic mark for every
phonemic hand shape, motion, and position (though it leaves something to be desired in the representation of facial expression), and a more
popular iconic system called SignWriting, which represents each sign with a rather abstract illustration of its salient features. SignWriting is
commonly used for student newsletters and similar purposes."
Q: What's with the name? A: At some point over the holidays, the movie Thunderball was on and I got to thinking about jet packs, Aston Martins, archenemies, Blofeld, SPECTRE and whether Miami is really worth 100 Million in diamonds or if it might have been better just to keep the diamonds instead of trying to save Miami. I mean, at the time of the movie, Miami hadn't even discovered cocaine yet and really wasn't on the map. If I were Blofeld, I would have picked an entirely different city to hold a bomb threat over. It was the sixties after all, take out San Francisco. Incidentally, at one point in the movie Bond finds himself in the Bahamas in the middle of a junkanoo, which is a kind of street fair where folks wear insanely colorful costumes (mostly of feathers) and dance around. Junkanoo! Now that would make a great name for a font. Much better than Thunderball. Is it too late to change the name?
Q: Your recent output - including this clodhopper - seems to be stuck on the 1.8 brick size filter, is your filter toggle stuck or something? A: Your Mom's filter toggle is stuck, buddy! And my next font will be called Clodhopper, and it will be yet another font built at 1.8 and it's going to be big and thick so you'll really feel it when I beat on your skull with it.
Q: Whoa! Touchy. Ok, how about that uppercase 'T', it's awfully funny looking, you gonna change it? A: Oh Boy. You just don't know when to quit, do you? The 'T' began as a spacing compromise but over the last few days it has grown on me - overtaken me really - like some saccharine soaked pop song that I hate but secretly love. So back off on the 'T', it's not going anywhere.
Q: Any last thoughts? A: Blofeld, Junkanoo, Clodhopper - all rad names for fonts that have yet to be born. Q.E.D.
