Sketchbook - last pages of the book


finished my sketchbook (right) today and started a new one!

i've been near-obsessively drawing in my sketchbook
whenever i get a chance, and it's becoming more of a journal-like
brain-purge of a book now...

so i'm a little more nervous & hesitant to share,
though i decided to be braver.

please handle (eye) these with care, if you will,
as my heart is worn upon my sleeve as i share these :

  3. You had me at "Hello"... Well, technically, you had me once I saw that first girl in the hoody sketch. I fell in love with her longing gaze and the fun splashes of red you use throughout your moleskine... ♥
