An alternate take on Eyeball Kids which has more expressive eyes.
Making this has given me an idea for an ASCII Roguelike tileset wherein lowercase letters represent juvenile creatures and uppercase letters represent adult ones.This is a clone of Eyeball Kids

A design which uses two crosses in the counter shapes of most glyphs.
INGREDIENTS: Triangles, Distilled Water, Orange Juice, Citric Acid, Powdered Unicorn Horn, Metaphlogiston Clef-21 (to preserve optical clarity), Waifu Tears.

KYOOOOB! The font CANNOT BE HALTED.
When I was in school, there were two things everyone was drawing: the "Cool S" and the 3D Cube. Bluemon already has a font in the works based on the S, so I decided to do one based on the cube!
I started doodling and ended up with this - a semimodular design that looks like a fusion of Coptic, Elder Futhark, Hebrew, and Latin. Arabic numerals included, of course!
A logo font for Zephtronix, the name used for my music electronics-related projects. This will be printed onto guitar pedals and maybe a synthesizer or two!
Just doodling with the Connect bricks!
Sometimes the stray particles connect to form new shapes, and sometimes they don't. I rather like the seeming randomness of this property, so maybe I won't standardize it after all.
An attempt to make a design with the pointy bricks. It reminds me of broken LCD displays, but also looks like it's in the middle of transforming into something.
Iteration 4: Basic Latin kerning finished.
DOODLE DOODLE DOODLE!
1. Letters with spurs will have the spur begin at the baseline. This provides the distinctive "high heeled" look.
2. Any letter whose traditional design has a straight vertical line on its left side will keep the line, no matter how the lines of the actual letter travel.
Experimental cloud flower doodle thing.
While this looks bizarre, it creates some unique effects. It is also visible at FAR smaller sizes than any other font I have seen. Check out the Pixel view to see. Interestingly, this superb readability is lost once the font is enlarged from this size.
I haven't figured out what to do with the numerals yet, and only put the placeholders there so I could get a better preview on my page.
A texture font with its own convoluted logic. The design rules and techniques are similar to that of Esperhand, but with different priorities assigned to them.
Because of the minimalist nature of the design, many glyphs resemble each other.
By request. This is the Shepard Tone of fonts - constantly rising and falling. Best viewed at around 2x Pixel size.
I was initially going to do a lowercase for this, but then the requestor changed their mind. So this being published as-is.
This is your medicine. YOUR medicine! So if you don't like the taste, maybe don't drink it.
Is it Serif or Sans? Western or Gothic? Double font or not? One thing is certain: This is not a time-travelling alien. Probably.
I decided to make a design which incorporated the thinnest/lightest weight lines possible in FontStruct. This is the result; I'll add more if people like it.
These 1/32 lines cannot be accurately nudged, so a unique line has to be built for each vertical position where I want a line. These lines also cannot be centered on a place where two curves meet (such as the middle of B or R). This introduces some unintentional asymmetry to the design, but I like it, so I'll keep it.
There is also the problem that forming a diagonal line of the same line weight is nearly impossible. While angled 1/32 lines can be formed, their angles are all close to 0. No method exists for making a line which slants at 45 degrees while also being 1/32 weight. So, I had to make some thicker lines in certain areas. I don't think they detract from the design, but if you scrutinize this enough, you'll notice them.
This is dedicated to everyone who complained that they couldn't read my other fonts!
Mechanical Horse resembles the engravings which might be found on a mechanical horse such as the one from Vampire Hunter D. What qualifies me to say this? Well, I watched Vampire Hunter D a couple of times and have been speculating wildly for decades, which is more than enough time to get good at it.
Please exercise caution when handling Mechanical Horse. Its edges can be pointy.
What would happen if we combined a segmented display with a CACTUS? This. This is what would happen.
A continuation of ideas present in Limbus, with a bunch of new ideas for good measure.
A font resting on some columns. This was a doodle that became an experiment, so there was a lot of iterating.
I made the columns wide enough for a variety of different designs to be able to stand on them, so feel free to clone this and try your own!
Guess who made another font with diamonds? This uses both additive and subtractive techniques in a minimalistic way to make a moderately readable design. Best viewed at extremely small or extremely large sizes.
A font made to be very economical.
This design uses as few unique shapes as possible. In addition to extensive rotations and flips (see AR, EMW, FL, GJUV, IHKT, NSZ25), glyphs are made so that they can be cut down to make other glyphs in as few cuts as possible (see BEI, used to make ACDFLMNOPRSWYZ1235689). Some other glyphs (see QX.,) then make use of the cut parts.
This means that, were these letters to be physically made, the maker would only need a few forms to start with and could cut the rest in only a few steps.
The name was chosen because of both a running joke between friends and because it was the coolest-looking phrase I tried when I auditioned the font.

A vaguely Courierlike OSD (Onscreen Display) font which tries its best to be casual. The name is inspired by the old computer joke: "Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?"
No filters or faux-beziers, just stock bricks and a bit of stacking/nudging!
More about the design:
It started as a doodle and an attempt to make a smooth, low-resolution, low-poly font, and then it became a Courierlike. I have other fonts that tried to do polygonal round shapes before this (such as Cartoon Riot) but this design is my first real success in this area.
Initially, I made the angled glyphs before the round ones. I didn't want to change the angled ones, so glyphs like C, O, and Q became a bit wider than they are tall. I'm quite fond of this, because in most designs these glyphs tend to have a tall and narrow character. I think the mildly squat look of this font makes it cuter and gives it more personality.
A lot of glyphs were altered in specific ways to look more like metal type, especially anything with diacritics which touch the letters themselves. Other glyphs were altered specifically to be interpretable at small size. I also use angled contours and actual round bricks alongside each other within the same glyphs, another technique which is geared toward style and interpretability at small size.
This font came with many new challenges and an array of new techniques had to be designed. Loops were an insurmountable challenge because of the low resolution and heavy line weight, so I drew rounded areas to suggest them. You can see it on letters like Greek γ, ζ, and ξ.
