I've started working on these shapes to create this curly but not geometric typeface.
Any feed back on it is very appreciated.
Not to spoil your fun, but those thin tight curves are going to be a devil in FontLab.
What do you mean "a devil", Chester?
Every bezier node and control point in every letter must, by the laws of type, be on a whole unit of the 1000 x 1000 unit grid. The finer your letterforms, and the more detail in them, the harder it is to describe them within the grid. A devil, that.
This one is worth doing. Pretty nice, even.
About the grid coarseness issue: if you really get pushed into a corner you could give the font a negative talus (like script fonts often do), probably by making the x-height (mostly) fill the Em and letting the extenders go over. Especially since this thing will probably only be used to set one like at a time, this isn't unsafe.
