Exactly one year ago two of my cousins, Chris and Cleofe, got into a dealer-loaned Lexus for a trip after their main car was being repaired. Cleofe's husband, a CHP officer, was driving and their teen daughter was along for the ride. While on the freeway, the accelerator became stuck and they lost control of the car. As the runaway vehicle sped up to over 100 mph, all four passengers were killed in a fiery crash in the San Diego River. The loss was unquantifiably devastating. This immensely tragic event led my aunt to testify before congress with damning evidence that would initiate the recall of millions of Toyota vehicles.
Requiemme Decorum was created on the way down to southern California for the funeral services. For Chris, Cleofe, Mark, and Mahala, may you all rest in peace and love.This is a clone

well another escher inspired set. however with this one i was also influenced by the soma cube - which is very escheresk itself. actually i don't know if i'm more happy about this set which is much more simple and clean than my previous efforts or that i finally googled upon the soma cube which i had as a kid and wasted many hours playing with...much like now with fs :)
thanks to frodo7 with Homage a Escher and shasta with Escheresk for providing great examples of clarity and inventiveness of design in this genre.

I filled it, kix. :) ----- It appears as a clone because that's where it started but every character is built from scratch. kix' brilliant original is an understatement of perfection, using the least amount of bricks for such a grand effect. However, it left not much space inside for any kind of meaningful rendering. Had to quadruple each glyph in order to get enough brick space inside to get some effect going. In the process I came to appreciate the true brilliance of the design and the awesomeness of certain characters. G, for instance. I have scaled everything up, but have not taken any liberties with the shapes—they are true to the original. If a certain glyph is off, it is due to my ineffective eye and not borne out of a desire to change the original. (Point it out, and I'll correct it). Hope you like it. ----- I live in the third-world; it is summer (well, it is here). Consequently, unannounced power outages 2, 5, 8 times a day are standard operating procedure. While/when we have power, my ISP may not. Consequently, unannounced internet outages 3, 4, 7 times a day are standard operating procedure. Out of 24 hours, I get 3, 4 hours of internet access on a good day. Everything everywhere is UPS'd up the wazoo. Still, UPSes need power to recharge. I never know when the computer might shut down or lose the internet connection. Consequently, I have become a master S-pusher. Sorry for the server load, admins. :-)This is a clone

Mostly inspired by the video game QBert, which was, I'm sure, partly inspired by M. C. Escher.
IsoMatrix was a font long before Fontstruct, and was much harder to realize with bricks than vectors.
This one is shared thanks to the intricate 3D output of the following fontstructors:
frodo's Hommage a Escher,
funk king's Soma.
It is also released for Em42, because it was created purely with the original set of bricks that Fontstruct started out with.This is a clone

...because it's not quite blackletter, is it? This font went through a lot of (interrupted) modification. Started off quite different; this is how it ended-up. My conclusion: All fonts want to be blackletter.This is a clone

inspired by Redonda and the other excellent fonts that have been done in this style. this is my first dot font. i searched to see if there were any italics and didn't find any; but they may be hiding here somewhere. started with lc just to see if i could do a basic set. then went for the uc and decided to make it a little more fancy or lyrical, if you will. then one thing led to another and i can't believe i did the whole basic latin :) i thought about waiting to release it, but changed my mind. this was fun and allows for the visualization of curves which really can't be done in FS. but still, i guess it's not like the real thing. oh, well :)

To meet the 32 pixel height criteria of the Handmade Competition, this is a chopped and sliced version of my NCD Embroidery font.
If you wish to use this font commercially, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org This is a clone
It looks quite simple, and in the end, it was, though getting to the end was anything but. This font appears as a clone of ookii because that's where I started it, thinking I'll just add the shadows. Getting the shadows to look natural and line up properly in every character was a geometric challenge. I ended up redrawing the whole thing three times over--in incremental step up of scale before getting it right. I love doing fonts like this one.This is a clone

A TRUE HAND WRITTEN font.
No two letters are the same, or use any of the same brick configurations.
From my very own hand using an Edding 5.0 Calligraphy pen.
Only the upper case is available for now. Due to a heavy work load this week, and several non-starter comp entries, I've unfortunately been unable to fully complete the lowercase and numerals. :-(
Hope you like it.
All comment and crits appreciated.

I decided to make a stencil version of my NCD Amphibian font.
I didn't have to change too much.
Slightly influenced by Afrojet's superb Whoopee which reminded me of NCD Amphibian when I first saw it.
There's still some tweaking to be done, so all comments welcomed.
This is a clone of NCD Amphibian

injected into me
emotions running over me
and when you're getting close
you touch my innermost
a feeling deep inside me knows
