The Difference Between OTF and TTF, Explained w/Kittens

Some illustrations I did for an article I wrote about the difference between OTF and TTF files.

I belong to quite a few typography Facebook groups, and the members range from casual users to creators. I've seen the question come up a few times lately, "What's the difference between OTF and TTF files?"

So I wrote up an analogy comparing font files to a basket full of kittens.

Then I decided to add illustrations.
