These are the days by lily-fox These are the days by lily-fox
Briefly, a girl named Baybette worked with me at the coffeeshop, and she did this amazing freehand typography art in moleskine notebooks. It blew my mind and made me want to try something new.

I like this a lot and I want to do more. I totally intended for this to be part of some Supernatural fan art, but didnít think to make any room for a face in there, heh. I might try to make some bags with this on.

These are the days you will get through. The days that will take you where you need to go.

Wow, this is really beautifully done! It looks like the kind of typography stuff music festivals and things use for their posters, stuff like that. Can you just automatically do everything you turn your hand to or what?? :P

AW, JEEZ. *^u^* Thanks. No, believe me, this doesn't happen a lot. Like, I've tried to do more typography since then, and it's just no good. But we'll see!

Really? Can't believe it! Ah well, good luck, I hope you have more success. It'd be cool to see you maybe incorporate some typography into your regular art in some way!

Such lovely word. The typography nerd is me if freaking out, because 'what can't she do?'

Thank you! I was playing with colors, but you know me. I'm just a sucker for aqua. :)

Thank you! It's a mash-up and freestyle embellishment of a couple of different fonts I've actually seen.

This is so fun! At first, I thought this was in reference to the Queen song, but it's cool that it isn't :) It's just the first thing that I thought of. I really like this and I'm excited to see more! Sometimes it's nice to draw out a certain phrase and not have to worry too much about proportions or perspective :)

Actually, I fucking love that song. It has some of the best lyrics I've ever heard. You know, "Love's such an old-fashioned word", etc. :)

Unfortunately, as a child from the '80s I automatically finish that sentence with "...of Our Lives."
Yay, for corney, faux-drama soap operas from the '80s. XD

Other then that, this looks awesome. Teal is definitely my favorite color.

Hah! I was born in '89 and I also finish it with ".. of our lives.", but that's because of the Queen song :)
