This is a fun, whimsical font—it was born because I kept having problems with wanting to put curls into my fonts, but they’d hit letters unattractively, or they’d obscure a letter. So I thought, why not put the swashes above and below the main body of letters? And then everything morphed from there!

Look!! It’s a new font!
This font marks a new milestone for me as a font artist/maker. First, it is my first font family with more than one font (yayyy). As the graphic shows, the font is in hollow and in solid—let me know which you like more!
Second, I have ceased to pretend that the accented characters will magically space themselves. :) This means going back and re-kerning all of my previous fonts, lol!
If you’re interested in the music-spiration, here’s a youtube clip for you!

I originally inked this font for Kimberly Geswein fonts. When I decided to make my own fonts, she sent the file back to me… and while I would have LOVED to have had another Janda font, I am SO EXCITED to present Simple Simon as an Austie Bost font!
It is so clean, right! And it’s also super cute. :)
And see that adorable clipart? It’s also for sale! Here’s the cover page for Austie Bost Simple Simon Clipart!

This is a font I am soooo excited to publish! My mom likes to help transcribe genealogy files, and sometimes they have really great handwriting samples… I traced some of the characters by hand, and other than getting a little swirlier (what can I say, I’m a swirly girl, lol), the invented characters that went with it, the lettering is very similar (but more legible) to those records.
My mom wanted to name the font “Austie Bost Romance,” but I couldn’t do that because I had a very cute font that I lettered for Kimberly Geswein called “Janda Romantic…” I hope she’ll be okay with the name change! I wanted to surprise her with a published font before telling her. :)

Sometimes it takes a little while to get good at something… I’m not a font expert yet, but I am much better than when I began! That means one thing: it’s time to back up and update the older fonts using my more mature understanding. :) So here it is… freshly updated, Austie Bost Kitten Klub!
Look!! There! Right at the bottom! It’s Austie Bost Starlit Beach, all right! Go visit the blog of the gal who made this cute graphic HERE! And go download my font after that at Dafont (free for personal use), or at Fontspring (for low-price professional use)!
