Lovely dirty fonts, an amalgamation of square elements (pixels) turns out to have an organic and natural quality that can be drawn out gently through much iterative random hacking, cloning, pulling apart and not putting back together. I love it!

Strokey Bacon Hey look! A cool new font which has gone over the handlebars and landed in the gravel. This is a corker, my favourite yet, hence it's position at the top of the page.
Infiltrace Letterforms have been scalpel'd and brought back to life in an amalgamation, a rabid splice together of font parts. Infiltrace is $20 and features an extensive character set. (Comes in both PostScript Type 1 and TrueType for Mac and PC.)
Refuse Trip Now, here's something I'm reasonably proud of. I wanted a hand drawn, badly drawn 3 dimensional letters type thing. Do you agree that it's nice as a title font? I think so...
I particularly like the way that you can make it a two colour experience. And it works very well on coloured backgrounds (as seen here) not just as a boring black effort. By they way, this one reveals more about itself the bigger you make it too!
Scratchy Can't get away from it can you? The pen on paper mess, when scanned and traced looks great as a font. Lazy, but true. Well, ok, lots of people have done this sorta thing but even more have done handwriting fonts which I think is even worse.
Inlines Rough Of course, fonts always look good big, don't they? This one looks great when it's nice and big. Why, you ask? Because it has subtle detail which becomes apparent when you look at it large. Trust me...
