I have been experimenting with hand-drawn type for that past year and I had been thinking for a while now that I wanted to bring the casual brush-script aesthetic to a typeface to see if it would translate well. I spent a few days last week refining the letter forms and adding numerals and punctuation to my first tyepface, Xibalba.

Xibalba is the Mayan word for the underworld or a place of darkness. I thought that was fitting for this urban script style lettering. It is also a reference to one of my favorite movies of all-time; The Fountain.
