After a bot reposted a photo of my printing on Reddit which led to a fairly lengthy discussion about whether or not I'm a robot, I wound up making a post myself which hit the front page.
And the discussion on that post led to my second post.
One of the things I got asked for several dozen times was a font based on my handwriting so today I used an online generator to make one:
Here's a link: www.darrencalvert.com/DMACFont.ttf

, fill it out, and make your own.
Do you print neatly, scrawl like a crazy person, somewhere in between?

I was writing in my journal today (poorly, it balanced on one knee while I reclined, a fact I knew future generations would puzzle over) when I considered how my signature had boiled down to a very quick but precise shape. I'm fairly confident no amateur could make this but it was not at all my name.
How'd I slowly evolve this beautiful hieroglyph, I wondered.
So I signed it three times at the end of the journal entry with a smug face.
Your handwriting is gorgeous of course.
My printing basically came from being bored in class + drafting + comic books. I would occasionally change "fonts" while taking notes just to keep myself entertained.
so thats what fontscript looks like with decent handwriting
It's all printing with a claw as an adult. Always have hands covered in Ink/Graphite, and smudges on my work.
(Painting and drawing with a claw about the same)
Thank you for sharing it!
It's a problem.
I had a university teacher who handed back our essays with half a page or more of feedback on each one and nobody could make out more than a few words. When we finally gave up and brought them to him to interpret, he couldn't read them either.
Attempts at fixing this while bored in college led to immense frustration and the idea that I'm just wired to be shitty at art. No point in practice my brain and hands just ain't gonna improve
Been trying to get into improving this as of late, no real improvement being observed
Needs to be vaguely legible:

I'm so jealous of DMAC and people like my father, whose handwriting is tidy.

my printing sucks balls
Really good for a few things, intended to copy hand lettering, and really overused because it's free.
I enjoy taking notes but there is a sense of despair when you go 100% on speed and you still lose ground to the professor.
Then look back on your notes and find them half illegible, and hope that by trying to write it out, ya at least absorbed some info.

Also, my handwriting is terrible. I have to concentrate for it to be legible for myself on a re-read, if someone else is supposed to read it, writing anything longer than a sentence by hand is slower than just typing it in notepad and printing it out:

Ball point pen:
edit: With a big fat misspelling in it...
(and serial killers are notorious anal retents).
Cursive can go fuck itself. I remember learning it in school and asking the teacher "why" I must learn a second form of writing.
Her answer was that it's "faster" since your pen leaves the page less often.
To this day that answer sounds like bullshit.
What, did some school board director somewhere think "Our kids can write pretty well but, damnit, they just aren't writing fast enough!"?
Oh. Oh, God no, it's just terrible.

also I seem to have no working pens
I don't think those two facts are related, but I'm not sure
Here is a photo of the note that went with my Secret Satan gift
Need some stuff designed or printed? I can help with that.
That actually looks quite a bit like my brother's writing. My dad on the other hand has printing I've always considered neater than mine. I keep meaning to get him to write something for me to post.
Also I like the idea of signing correspondence with "Your Satan,".
