This took unreasonable amounts of time. But oh was it fun.
I would’ve gone thinner and crazier and stuff (and maybe more experimental with the monoline-but-flaring thing, like with what I tried in the 2) but hey it’s for newsprint. Oh, TypeCooker. :)
BTW, felt like my monoline-drawing-fu improved considerably from that leftmost swash to the right side one. Practice strikes quick, it seems.
