The development URL may include an unfinished, experimental font not yet ready for use in the prime-time.
The font in this archive is a pixel font, and therefore it is best displayed at a font-size of 128 (pixels) for high definition devices.

Just because "Sketchy" is originally a pixel font doesn't mean that you have to keep it that way. I am personally working on another version with smoother lines and curves, myself.
About this "sketchy" TTF pixel font
This font was supposed to be something totally different, but I made the lowercase characters way too small. Then I looked and I liked the few I did, so what the heck, I started another pixel font.
This is not the final, it is just something for me to toy with without thinking too hard about how to make the puzzle pieces fit.

Added the capitals from A to O. I'll work on the others, later. Time to sleep. ;)

I finished all the main letters and some punctuation. I am not going to create any numbers for this in memorandum...
In memorandum of the fact that math came between my son and I, as well as between my father and I. I am not rebelling against math, it's just that my son is so good at it that he spends all his time working math problems and it robs time away from our time together. With my father, he was always pushing math on me and I was so upset because once we got to geometry & trigonometry I was expected to take formulas on faith, but everyone refused to show me how the formulas worked, when I was expected to show all of my work, always (without exception). I rebelled against the hypocrisy of a logic system that refused to conform to the very logic it was supposed to represent.
Note that I am highly in favor of math skills. I am more rebelling against the mathematical education system that won't teach math skills correctly, effectively, or even efficiently.
Anyway, there's my little rant. If you want numbers and mathematical symbols, you can put them in yourself. This is Creative Commons Attribution Share-a-like Freeware. Although my Copyright (2014) is maintained over the original work I did to create this Sketchy font, further contribution to the development of this font and any future derivatives are highly encouraged as long as the font remains under the same license in all modifications and re-distributions and remains free for commercial use. I will make a paid version of this font available should anyone require me to finish it, but as I said, you can do it yourself at FontStruct, easily.

LOL... I saw something broken and went in and fixed it. While I was there, I finished-out the Basic Latin letterset (the rest of the punctuation and the numerals it needed) and added a Registered TM mark. You can still add more stuff or taylor it your needs/style.
