A little while ago i ordered some markers of my own, and my grandparents were supposed to bring them when they visited. But since Caleb and mom went to the States they decided to stay with them. However, grandma was very very nice and sent me and Claire packages with everything we had ordered! I was very happy and started working right away.

Markers are super tricky, and will take me a little while to get used to them. But they're lots of fun, and the warm grey looks really cool in my opinion.

Last night I also scanned some other things i had done in the past couple weeks:

The bird was done during our ski trip, a couple days before I broke my wrist. I really like the simplicity of it.

I also drew this one during our ski trip. I had been finishing up Les Miserables and was in a quite romantic mood (hehe) so I decided to experiment with cross-hatching. I'd probably do a couple things differently if I could have, but it was still great practice.

Beautiful work. I'm excited to see your experiments with markers. I'm loving it so far.

Les Mis...putting you in a romantic mood? Did we read the same book - betrayal, war, death, poverty?! That's what I think of when I think of a love story!

Keep up the creativity. You're inspiring.

PS. accidentally pushed the publish button on the last comment before I was done so had to delete it...but it looks weird there saying the author deleted it. I promise it was just a fragment of what I wrote here!
