Thanks to everyone who gave their input on my Gocco woes. Lots of good suggestions there. I think it might have been a combination of things - ink, fabric texture ... frustration ;)
I'm sure some people reading this blog are getting kind of sick of my hometown adoration, but whenever I'm doodling and feel like experimenting with a new style, it's always Melbourne related stuff that pops into my head.
I've always wanted to try this hand-drawn-fancy-lettering look that I've seen around the traps, and got my inspiration from this fantastic Dover book we happened to have on the shelf: "Bizarre & Ornamental Alphabets".
Fun fun. Okay back to enjoying the long weekend :)
