This doesn’t suffer from the main issue I have with comic sans. Comic sans tries to look casual, but it’s too neat and too refined. The whimsy it is going for feels totally contrived and unnatural. I like that this new font is rough around the edges and actually looks hand drawn.

I kept thinking Tom Gauld when I read Tom Goulet. Anyway, it seemed like something a literary-nerd cartoonist would do. But couldn’t figure out Tom Gauld’s name, so long story short google image search results for “jetpack comic” are pretty fun, but if you really need to find him “New York Times Comic Tom” brings him right up.

This looks like someone redrew Wingdings with a sharpie, and it’s actually… kinda cute?

Yeah, this has some charm to it. I’m a lot more likely to use this than Wingdings or Comic Sans…
