I decided not to draw 8 maids-a-milking today, but still wanted to present the idea. So how do I get at the essence of the story without beating it over the head? Perhaps something like this Maids Milking signage. It is still quite overt, but the bold geometric lines of the Blackout Sunrise font by Tyler Finck constrain the hand-rendered organic pattern. Happy New Year Y'all!
