  1. Nice, nice work Steve. LOVE the art and of course the typeface! What's the name of the typeface please? K

    1. Thank you Karla! I so appreciate the accolades.

      The font is called Komika and comes in a variety of faces. I like it, however the one thing that annoys me to no end is the lower case f. It is same as the CAP F! It's very distracting to the point I can't help but wonder if it was an error. I will probably make a change on the final printed editions. At some point, I will build my own hand-drawn font.

  2. Oh, your stuff is priceless. Is there anyway you could draw a donkey hacking up a pantsuit??? :)
