36 days of type - my hand drawn alphabet

Each year illustrators and designers are challenged to take part in '36 days of type' - a project that involves creating every letter of the alphabet and 10 numbers in whatever method they like. Last year I took on the challenge in order to develop using different mediums and styles. This year I wanted to challenge ideas using just one method – drawing. Could I create a different idea for each day using just a pencil or pen? For the alphabet I thought of words that started with each letter and sought to find creative ways of depicting the word. For the numbers I decided to create all 10 out of animals. Below are my ideas, let me know what you think.
