I haven't done any drawing this year, so I'm hoping that looking at some of the work I did last year will inspire me to start back up. Looking all everyone's art and crafts on Craftster is even more inspiring and motivating! Smiley

Might be my favourite of last year. I remember the mood and head space I was in when I did this. I had no idea what I was going to draw when I was working on this, but is usually the case. Tongue



Self Portrait:







And a couple of cutesie ones:





Based on my love of twizzlers / red liquorice...ahhh.. now I was some.


Now to go and actually make some new things! ...Buttttt twizzlersssss... might need to nip to the store first.

    Thank you so much vincentvanbuck! xo I don't draw very often, but i find that it is a very therapeutic activity, so I'm trying to do it more regularly. Cheers!
