I like this one very much, and I'm surprised that nobody has commented or voted on it until now.

Thanks for the comments.

This was more a way for me to have a go at fontstructing again, after a bit of a break, than a serious entry - I always leave these things too late.

If I get a few spare minutes, I'll hopefull add some more, but there's not much else on my desk to draw...

How about a magnetized dispenser of paper clips? And since you have a pencil, why not add a ballpoint pen?

Last couple of samples.

I daresay I've bent the rules a little with the inclusion of *some* letters and numbers - hopefully not.

Although... the bent paperclip intended to resemble an "fs" ligature, may be a little too much.

I'm pretty sure letters and numbers are allowed for elements of the illustration. The point is that it shouldn't be usable for text. That's how I've interpreted the rules.
