I love to work on words. Just one word. And these days I kind of fell in love with "Cupcakes". And I was thinking of a good way to display it. And I quickly thought of the italian typography from the beginning of the 20th century.
This sketch is the first part of the process. Next is going to be vectorization.

Great. Waiting for vector version:) Keep on:)
Really nice Francis ! I really love it (like all your lettering).
Good luck for the next step :)
Have fun with vectorisation :)
Love the stylo
This looks promising, I really like the k.
Something in that k-e ligature is knocking me off.
@Christophe Hermann @Nicolas BIRCKEL @Forsuregraphic Thanks for your support. Sure vectorization is going the BIG part ! :)
@Luke Ritchie Thanks Luke, really appreciate your comment, especially coming from you
@Nacho I do agree. That is one of the parts I want to work on with Illustrator. There could be a curve between these two letters but the style on the first letters show a kind of 60° angle so I thought it would be better to continue that way. But still no sure about it. Second point is kerning. Maybe I should try to make it a little bit more tight.
Really nice (and great word choice!), the style works beautifully. I love the loop inside your 'C', it really leads your eye into it. I also love the little flick at the top of the 'k', it's a great touch.
I too agree with @Nacho about the 'k-e' area. I do really like the angled stroke, like you said it fits well with everything else – once you tighten the spacing there, it should really help. I think the 's' might be contributing to it looking a little strange too, it seems quite wide/thick compared to the 'C' for example. All the best with it and looking forward to the next step!
Lovely! I agree with you, I'd tighten up the "kes" a bit. The curl of the "C" seems a bit long, also. Just first impressions, this is looking really nice! I'm envious of your clean pencil skills :D
@Claire Coullon Thanks for your feedback. The more I see it the more I agree on these 3 last letters. I am going to try to apply your advice and see where it goes.
@Joseph Alessio Thanks for your support :)
That looks great @Francis Chouquet! So clean and good looking.
I would say the 'akes' are too wide compare to the other characters, so I would make the actual letterforms narrower, not just the kerning between them. That would help with the balance of the word a great deal. I think everything else was already covered by @Joseph Alessio, @Claire Coullon, @Nacho, and @Luke Ritchie.
@Nikita Prokhorov I will try to make it narrower too to see if it helps. Thanks for your feedback :)
Love the contrast between curves and straight lines and how it all fits perfectly
Dunno what I love better - cupcakes or this awesome font :)
@Julia Khusainova Thanks Julia :) I should post the vector version soon ;-)
