I am aware of all this.
I'm gonna dump some more files here, no use cluttering the board with new topics.
I am planning on releasing them all by the name Odd Bundle.
I use my own fonts as blends too. Beejuice is a blend from my Ergam.
From an ethical and artistic standpoint, I think most of these are too close to existing, popular typefaces. It's one thing to be inspired by two specific typefaces and come up with something new on your own, by drawing (literally and metaphorically) your own conclusions—that's adding something new to the world. But using existing data is, to paraphrase Milton Glaser, robbing yourself of your own imagination and form-making abilities, and not a path to success.
What is most likely to happen is for me to create some entirely new font based on the overall process after I have stared at them long enough and the fine folks here speak their minds . Blending gives an idea but it creates more problems than it solves. And the results are obviously inbred and niche.
The above blended fonts are obviously never gonna be used, but the topic is O.K. I think I will post some stuff here that I do in my free time so my skills don't rust. It may be interesting for some people.
This is a Cyrillic I did for these fonts, just for the challenge. They are initials, so I haven't worked out the spacing ot kerning
