Maybe I've found a signature style?
This girl was making a silly face in the picture from which I copied. I didn't intend it to look so dark, but I think it pops.
"How could it have taken me so long so realize that pen drawings and sloppy watercolors are meant for each other?"
This might be the drawing I point to when my subconscious screams about a white background. Not diggin' it as much as extending that yellow.
I replaced my typical Russian lit classic with a sketchbook this time. My wife thinks this is proof that I could do a children's book. I'm secretly inclined to agree.
