Mandalesque

Presenting a new dingbats font, Mandalesque! A collection of mandala-type illustrations for decorative projects. The complete character map can be viewed here on my Fontspace page. I’m really enjoying creating these types of fonts lately and I have a few more that are in progress. Hopefully I can get back to doing more once the craziness of the holidays are over. Until then, I hope you enjoy this. And please, if you ever have any problems with any of my fonts please feel free to contact me anytime! Happy holidays!!

Vanilla Extract

Just released a few hours ago-Vanilla Extract!

We’re making homemade vanilla extract and I wanted to make labels for them. Even though this isn’t a flowery, ornate, traditional kind of font for something like that I could see it working as a generic but modern medicine bottle kind of look. I’m figuring out the design for them now. Once I have something I’ll post the labels on this blog for a free download. Seriously though if you are ever interested in making vanilla extract it turns out so delicious!

Paper Snowflakes

Paper Snowflakes! Just in time for the holiday season and winter, this dingbat font contains solid and outlined snowflakes-the kind you might cut from paper. This font is not 100% complete yet but it’s still chock full of flaky goodness. Just consider this a preview! 😀 Free download at Sharasfonts.com!

Dragging Canoe-a font inspired by the Cherokee

We just recently visited Cherokee, NC. That is where the Eastern Band of Cherokee live. It’s such a beautiful city with lots to see and do. I was amazed by the street signs there. Everything is written in English and in Cherokee and the letterforms of the Cherokee syllabary were nothing short of amazing to me. There are a lot of latin letterforms but they look like a phonetic alphabet with diacritical marks. Another feature that made it so interesting was the “letters” (which are really syllables) didn’t match each other. There are capital block type glyphs along with swooshy and swirls of all sorts. Thick and thin stems, seemingly incongruent but still working well together visually. As far as the name of this font, during our trip I found out that my friend Brenda is a descendent of Dragging Canoe, a Cherokee warrior who was a real badass! His story is even featured in the Cherokee museum. Anyway, I couldn’t hope to do their writing justice but here is my attempt. By the way, if you go there you HAVE to eat an Indian Taco!
