Hollie

I can't believe it's been a year since my last post. At first it was just moving into this new house and trying to get settled in, and then there were many other things, gaming, work, family, friends, travels... it was just hectic. I thought of it as a year of vacation from drawing anything on my Moleskine, but I do occasionally doodle here and there.

(Update: I misspelled her name, it's actually Hollie and not Holly)
Anyway, here's a quick sketch of my co-worker's granddaughter, Hollie. I thought she has the most serene smile, and she's an angel(because she absolutely loves cats), eventhough I've never met her.

Wishing everyone a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    1. Hahahaha... thanks Dan. It's not that I have a choice really, unless I decide to be a homeless and hungry artist and live in a cardboard box :p

    1. Appreciate it Stew. I do enjoy drawing hair for whatever reason. Not that I am obsessed with hair or anything... and I love drawing eyes too. ^^
