2 Waiting Robots
I love the personalities… almost like one is the reverse of the other! I decided to do thing-a-day this month, and I’ve already missed a day and it’s only day 4.

New Years Resolutions…

New Years Resolutions...
I guess I should document some here for posterity, huh? 2 years ago my resolution was to do Illustration Friday every week, and I succeeded!  And my art got better in the process.
