Foundry in Minnesota run by "Chank", who has been making fonts since 1992. Free fonts sub-page. Chank Diesel from Minneapolis (Charles Andermack in the NY Times and Charles R. Anderson, b. Edmonton, 1970, elsewhere) is Chank, the prolific designer. He runs Chank Fonts with Heidi Olmack ("El Mack de los Toros"). Earlier notices in his faces refer to CAKE Publications (2401 University Ave. NE, Mpls, MN 55418), Chank Foo, Schmopyright, and Exploding (PO Box 90100, San Diego, CA 92169). Bio by Susan Froyd. See also here or here or here or here. Handwriting font service for 95USD. 95 USD Go font Yourself font service based on filling out a form. Piece on Chank in the MinnPost. Chank is a popular and colorful figure who said this about himself: I like to drink a lot, and would like to think I'm known for it. Several of my fonts were inspired by booze, and I like to encourage other people to drink more, too. My best font is called Liquorstore.
