where can i ﬁnd handdrawn fonts like action jackson? http://www.dafont.com/en/caracteres.php?size=33.75&y=50&ﬁchier=action_jackson&libelle=Action+Jackson
Kenny — Max Kisman has a couple of nice ones. http://www.hollandfonts.com/CAT.html Maybe Chank or Brian Bonislawsky? http://www.chank.com/ http://www.myfonts.com/person/bonislawsky/brian/j/ You could also draw your own, depending on what ﬂavor you are looking for. bj
Action Jackson is a Tom7 font, there’s a link to his site on the page that lists the font: http://fonts.tom7.com/ All of his fonts are hand drawn like that. I’ve found several of them useful before.
great thanks david and chris! just what i was looking for
I’ve never made my own fonts before (i know, shame on me). Maybe I should give it a try. Is it diﬃcult? :p What kind of program do you recomment, after I have made sketches?
you might check out http://www.fontiﬁer.com/ In lieu of that, you scan your stuﬀ into a raster program such as Photoshop. Streamline the raster to get vector. Then the vector you can turn into a font using FontLab or Fontographer or FontStudio.
great thanks mate!
Point Central has some. Their site is down right not though. Astigmatic too.

>What kind of program do you recomment, after I have made sketches? Seeing as no-one else mentioned it, if you’re new to type design and want to experiment before investing the $600 for FontLab, you could try TypeTool, FontLab’s smaller brother, at a fraction of the price, with the added beneﬁt its not nearly as scary to use! http://www.fontlab.com/html/typetool.html
