Have a good weekend everyone ~
Look twice at these pen and ink illustrations. More beautiful work from the Gabriel Moreno Gallery.
Studio 1482 has started One Drawing a Day, where you can find daily doodles from the desks to the internet. What a fun project! I’ll find pages and pages of thumbnails and strange sketches strewn all over my desk, but I’m not sure that they are worthy of posting. Sometimes I don’t even remember what they were for! That’s the best… Studio 1482 has some nice work on their site too. Happy doodling!
