Daddy’s Drawings — Post 1

Feb 25 · 3 min read

42 days before my daughter was born, I bought a whiteboard. I started a decrementing counter from that day.

For next 42 days I made one drawing everyday. And as I guessed, when the counter reached on day zero… it was 3rd july , Gina’s birthday.

There are 42 of them, in this blog post I am sharing some of those drawings. In my next post I will share some drawings I created after Gina was born.
