the name was not my invention. i took it from the name of a sun cream we bought at the drugstore. this cream is labelled with violet text on yellow background. this is how i came to that obscour colour combination.

Cool font! Awesome with some filling! (And the name fits its look pretty well)

just read from a table and "and" with plain pixels ;). nothing special about it. it was far more work to put the bits into an order suitable for efficient rendering

Nice work. I look forward to deciphering how you did the texture fill; I spent way more space in Foundry for that that I would have liked.

Real pixel based font with 6x7 independent voxels per sprite. The font was pixelled using VChar64 and converted into a 138 bytes sized bitstream using an own c++ tool. The c64-side displayer then renders the spritefont from this bitstream.
I'm pretty convinced that this is the maximum number of pixels per sprite you can get out of the 256 byte and 26 chars limit. But please surprise me. ;)
