About this font family
Sunshine is the unlikely alphabet collision of Gobbler and Liquorstore. Chank’s napkin scrawl smashed into the letters commonly found on signage at the neighborhood liquor store. Gobbler’s blotchy textures fragmented Liquorstore’s uniform stroke. It began as a hideous lumpy thing with random vector points everywhere.
