31/31 - Of course, I had to save the Art Deco font for New Year's Eve ūüėä Thank you for putting up with my erratic posting and Happy New Year, everyone! ūü•ā

30/31 - I was tired of doing clean lines and liked the dishevelled look on this one, so I left it that way :)

29/31 - Two versions for this one! The first one is inspired by Fleetwood Mac and a random Prosecco label (Freixenet). The second one, a slightly polished draft, is messier and crazier, it's just the same but with an Edward Gorey twist. :) #typecalendar #numbers #adventcalendar2018 #handtype #29 #twentynine #edwardgorey #freixenet

28/31 - Getting kinda groovy ūüé∂

27/31 - This number has been through quite a few (half-assed, IMHO) iterations before I decided on something more straightforward. Swipe for drafts and let me know if one of those earlier versions stands out more to you! -

26/31 - When it comes to make-up, I can't for the life of me do a decent cat eyeliner. But I just did a cat eyeliner-looking tail with my brush pen on that '2'. WHY? -

25/31 - Building high-curve, high-contrast type with pencil is a lot of fun! Thought I might keep those lines in the same spirit, ie on the messy side here. -

24/31 - Still no sign of my eraser, it must have fallen into the same space-time rift I fell into those last few days. Anyway, merry belated Christmas! ūüéĄ The next pics are some doodles made by my brother and me. That wicked-looking '24' (pic 2/3), on the right side of the page with an asterisk is his work!

23/31 - Nested numbers + ornaments V2! -

22/31 - I couldn't find my eraser so I just piled more messy lines on top of a little slip-up. Not sure if it works but it was a small step out of my comfort zone :) #happylittleaccidents -

21/31 - I was playing around with nested numbers and thought this pair could use some embellishments. I'm a big fan of the Egyptian Revival art movement of the 1920s-30s so the lotus flower on the '1' came pretty easily. On second thought, I should have probably turned the petals upright, but that would have not helped with readability. -

Any resemblance to a certain rock band member's occult personal symbol is purely coincidental ūüėČ Swipe for progress shots. -
