Hand Drawn Fonts Collection

I’ve compiled a list of free hand drawn fonts. They’re not the classic handwritten style but rather sketches of actual serif and sans serif fonts. If you know of any other font that would fit into this collection let me know.

  1. those are so awesome; i especially love abusive pencil and karabine. Here’s one i found on the front page of dafont that looks pretty cool: http://www.dafont.com/tiza.font
    it’s not quite as sketchy looking as these, but still seems to have a hand drawn feel to it. i love that it’s not only hand drawn, but also a big fat slab serif font; i have a love affair with slab serif fonts.

  2. Those are my favourite too together with Rockwell Sketch. I’ve included Tiza in the list 🙂

  3. They’re just great! 🙂 Thank you!

  17. Found a new site called http://www.fonts2u.com. These guys have over 20k free fonts nicely categorized
    and what I really liked is the extended search they offer. You may search thru all character
    maps. I was trying to find fonts with Japanese characters. I simply selected desired character
    map, hit search and got fonts supporting them. Really cool and effective.

  18. Hi there, i was looking for a font which is based on “faces” within the letters…. do you have something like this please
    Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you soon

  19. @Mel: Unfortunately I don’t know a font like that. I would suggest you have a look at http://www.dafont.com/ which offers one of the largest collection of free fonts.
