Hello Juan, pretty face you got here.
Here's some suggest, the 's' seems a little bit light than the others. Maybe you can add some weight on the stroke. And it's a little 'rise' from the baseline. You know that the 's' dont stand like other character.
And I'm not sure about the 'v'. It's growing on me, and I can't figure it why, and what.
Well that's it, I'll post some reply later.

Oh by the way, where's the uppercase?
And, can you post us the face in different colour? The red really bothering my eye.

I like the first 'g'. Are you going to use both, or just one?

And the first 'y'.

Mmmmm, sacreligious...

It looks nice, friendly and sort of compressed vertically. I like it. THe 'g' is a wee bit funky, but it might just work.

Buena JP

Me gusta mucho Isabel.

El ojo de letras como la "a", la "b","c","d","g","e",,,,etc le dan un muy buen caracter a tu letra, lo que si, trataría de afinar la acentuación de las vocales: fíjate en el contraste que lograste en la de la "ñ" (que tiene una inclinación muy linda y femenina).

En cuanto a la "g" y a la "y", también me gustan mucho más las primeras, pero trataría de hacerlas un poco menos conflictivas con las letra que las antecede.

Saludos y felicidades

Hola Juan Pablo,

Wellcome to typophile, and show us some uppercases with that sacreligious feeling...
Are you already with some lowercase s`s ?
Keep fishing!

...I love that g & y, im still waiting for the italic sketches (rollitos primavera)

Miguel.

i like a lot, and you have worked a lot since december

few comments

in "Caja alta guatona italiana" i think that the "Q" is too thick in the tail inside the globe, it should be the same the end of the tail(encuentro que la cola en su interior esta muy gruesa, debiera mantener el grosor de la cola al final)

in "caja baja italica" i think the x and 5 could be more expresive in its inclination(podrian ser mas cursivas, en especial con el 5)

felicidades, y gran trabajo el que haz hecho

I would think of promising as an understatement. *First face* -WOW.

I am especially font of your asymmetrical brackets and parentheses.

This is progressing very well. Beautiful presentation.

The ligatures! Schwing!
Maybe not the most useful crit ever :-)
Ok. The J's are a sticking point for me. You have a nice thing working with the soft roundness, but the negative space in the hook is maybe a bit too soft/open? Particularly in the small cap and heavy weights. Maybe do a version that echos the g and y.

That would give us Joneses something to work with! This is very tasty font.

Lo mas padre de tu pdf es la biografia super ingeniosa. El font, bien muy bien, solo checate que onda con los overshoots de la "o" pero en general tiene buena textura. Si la sigues desarrollando vas por excelente camino.

obvias felicidades desde ciudad de mexico

y mandame uno de tus comics! (no es cierto)

bueno, he avanzado algo en mi tipograf

Really very nice. I love the differences between the weights.

Just one thing: the spacing in the Regular is too loose.

notable compadre, me gusta mucho como invertiste los trazos de la "y", eso si en la descendente yo no hari tan brusco el cambio de grosor con la diagonal izquierda y ademas tratar

Guys,
You know I like reading Spanish (and trying to write it), but I assume you realize that you're seriously limiting the audience of your posts when you don't write in English, and this limits the resultant dialog. Of course it's harder to write in a non-native language, but if your English is not too bad, or even merely somewhat embarassing (I think few people here mind, or would think less of you), as long as it's not largely unintelligible, consider using English instead,

Another sad commentary on the state of the American education system, eh?

Damn, this does have me wishing that I paid more attention during Spanish class ...
