Cooper, tyke, sauna inspired new e.

I was just wondering... perhaps a bit early... what you think about my new letter e (my first self made letter e that is). A few months ago I worked quite a lot with the cooper, tyke and sauna typefaces and found myself drawing this e last week in the train.

I used the little serif of the e to make the serifs of the other letters quickly in illustrator, but I was just wondering what you think of this e. =)))

Hmz.. knowing what other people post here I know this is not much... but I was just wondering if this would make a happy little alphabet that is worth pursuing further...

Thanks (as always) for your feedback! =)

Ave a nice day!

hmz... Is it really that bad or should i have made up a nicer story to go with the e to get some replies?

hmz... I'll continue with it a bit further and perhaps ask again at a later time. =)

Think left.

It's hard to tell the character of the alphabet from only a few letters, how the strokes vary and what the specific features of the font might be...maybe try a few more letters, then it will be easier to give suggestions.
It looks like it might be suitable for cartoony computer games...was that the idea?

It makes me think of chocolate cookies with jellowy stuff on could be fun for a small cake shop, especially if you keep the weird blurby character of it.

Hi... sorry for the extremely late reply.
I haven't had time to work on it for a long time. So no updates for now. I thought I'd receive emails when people would reply, so I haven't checked this post anymore since I didn't get any updates in my mail.
But it's nice to see that some people did reply to the post.

Very much appreciated.
Bendy I was just randomly drawing while sitting in the train to work and this letter was what I ended up with when I reached the last station. I didn't have any idea what to use it for (still don't)... I just thought that if I'd start drawing and making my own alphabet it would be a good learning curve to type design.

Thanks Flösser! Perhaps someday I will finish it and you never know... Maybe someday it might be used on something (although the company would have to be a "good" company... with good people and friendly animals and all that... I like those sorts of companies) =)

anyway... sorry for the late reply.. and tnx for taking the time to write something about my e =)
