Inline script-like bold display face on T-shirt

Hi all, this one looks like a softer, rounder version of Matrix Inline Script. I have the feeling I’ve seen it before, but cannot seem to find it.

Yves, how old is this? Looks like the sort of thing Harold Lohner or Nick Curtis might have revived.

Frustrating. Can't find a digital.
Somewhat similar flavor is a design by Lucien Bernhard sold by Bauersche Gießerei in 1930 as Lilith. Digitized by Nick Curtis as Annabelle Matinee NF http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/annabelle-matinee-nf/

Are you sure it's not lettering? Either that or lots of alternates – four different e:s, three different o's, lower case p seems small and uneven comparatively etc.

True, but many lettering specimens have been the source of fonts. I know that Nick Curtis, for example, sometimes made fonts based on the limited set of letters found on a luggage label, or something like that. Also, this looks like the sort of thing that showcard lettering artists would make. Quite often they had a full alphabet to use as a reference. So perhaps it is still possible that someone fonted this one.

At first I thought this looked familiar - and I searched all over at likely sources - but then I concluded that fonts like Lilith, inline Einhorn and a Japanese font called Candy all contributed to this feeling. After seeing the extreme differences in the two s's (and lesser differences Johan mentions), I highly suspect this is (very nice) artwork.

I know Einhorn but I can't find a Japanese font called Candy.
I presume its not this one :)

The creator was Creator Font, but the site link is dead now. The font itself, Candy Bold, is irrelevant outside my own graphic memory - and poorly made.

Many thanks Mike F. I agree memory is pretty subjective, and the font is indeed not a masterpiece. I suppose we can now say finis to this wannabe font? :)
Cheers
