still working on my type, almost finished with the lowercase.

This is looking quite good. I would watch the optical heights of the letters. Sometimes the 'a' or the 'g' can look a bit too tall or too short depending on their surrounding letters.
It feels so nice to actually read with it. Really natural. Cool!
Kind of hard to give any constructive feedback set at that small of a point size.
Looks good. Only thing that has caught my eye is the 'g' seems thicker.
@Joe Prince @Trevor Baum @Peter Tait thanks for the comments, here is a pdf.
@matt yow after looking at the PDF, I take back my comment on the 'g' - it looks great as is.
I would make the 'a' bowl slightly bigger though, it looks a little squished down.
I love it -- it's very out-of-the-way, almost transparent. I definitely feel there's an issue with the 'g' though.
@matt yow, is this a screen shot or a print out? Feel free to send me a proof if you want. I'd love to see. Also is this for screen use or print use?
@Joe Prince from my experience, it's actually good to look at typefaces (even decorative ones that you don't intend to use small) in smaller point sizes when reviewing. For me, it helps me figure out if the word spacing is ok. You also see all the flaws and if everything is even.
@Lila, you da bomb. I’ll email you the .otf and some more recent .pdf specs.
Oh, and to answer your questions: this is a print out, the intent is for print.
