  • Thanks For All the Fish.

    It’s been a while since my last update here on ODN, and this will probably be my LAST update on here. You see, I’ve been in the process of transitioning away from the One Deranged Neko name. I found that if I ever get to making this something more than just a personal rambling blog, […]

  • 2017-08-13 – ODN Falchion Beta Progress

    Been out of the mood to work on fonts for a while but recently I got the hankerin to work on them again. I’ve completed the revamp of the alphanumerics but have been bouncing around different projects as to keep from getting burned out yet again. 😛

  • Focus Shift Again

    Last night I couldn’t bring myself to work on the NES-like font, doesn’t feel right without a proper name. So instead I spent all night redrawing SoulSword to use my new 2048pt template and almost finished all numerals and uppercase letters in one bash. What’s sad is I started work on this thing back when […]

  • Testing WP>Tumblr Connectivity

    Ignore this. Just faffing about.

  • Yes, I AM alive

    I really haven’t had much to show lately. So here are the highlights. XP – I’ve taken on redoing the fonts I’ve been working on…AGAIN! Yes again! I got the uber expensive FontLab Studio since my last post. It’s kind of prone to crashing on Windows and has a learning curve to it. They’re currently […]

  • Stupid Spam 6

    Well THIS is a first. What I have here a Nigerian Prince Scam, but this one is kind of unique. Instead of “give money to get more money” this one claims I have been scammed and I need contact them to get my money. Addresses and emails have been removed. The thing is the email […]

  • Stupid Spam V

    I have 2 spam emails to share that tickled me. The first is a typical Nigerian Prince Scam one, but this one is pretty unique. It purports to be from the Department of Homeland security. I’m Mr Jeh Johnson, the secretary of U.S department of homeland security, this is to inform you that your abandoned […]

  • ODN Only One Immortal

    I’ve been redrawing one of the very first fonts I ever tried to make back in 2000. This was back when Highlander: The Series was still a thing. I didn’t touch this for a VERY long time, to the point I can’t even open the CorelDraw files they’re so old. I took a break from […]

  • Musings on Font Stuff

    Rotate or Skew? Skew or Rotate? I found myself pondering this when redrawing characters using Illustrator. I started all this back around 2000 using CorelDraw 5, some characters with angles just never looked right. They were always too thick with rotation or too thin with skewing. Well I finally hit upon the solution, split the difference between rotated […]

  • 2014 In Retrospect

    Nyo, all you wonderful people out there casually stop by this dusty old site. I want to ramble about myself today. For me 2014 was a weird year. I had a lot of health problems, which thankfully turned out not to be major. Though it did affect my state of mind and my work. What […]
