22/4: Zebra

Would you guess that this sketch was based on a toy or photo? It seems obvious to me that it’s from a toy, but then, I saw the toy.

22/1: Toy people

Monumental scale for these little people.  I love how the male character on the left seems to be ogling the female in the middle. Totally accidental, I swear!

13/3: After the party

Cleaning up after some mama friends and their little ones came for a visit, I noticed the interesting juxtaposition of the adults’ coffee accouterments and the girls’ playthings.

I can’t seem to put the camera down for the pencil this week.

7/3: Scorpion
