This is my attempt of lettering art - and yes I do notice the embarrassing typo on the word 'drinking'. It was a late night work to catch up the deadline, oh well. Artwork theme: what I do with my friends.

Less procrastination, more doing yeah!

There once was a man named George,
with 10 tall daughters and a son,
They drove him crazy with their nonsense,
but mostly, he reflected, life was fun.

The house they lived in was grand,
and people would come gather round to see.
They'd have parties and music and ponies,
and every so often a tee pee.

But one by one they grew older,
and slowly ventured out its door.
Til one George realised 
that his play house had become
no more.
