Quick Tablet Sketches
When my daughter was visiting the other week we had a drawing contest using our tablets. Someone suggested a title, ie clown in a canon, haunted house, fish on a bike and a flying monkey and we quickly drew our sketches. We both came up with completely different ideas of course.

Christmas Tree Tag
I made this at a play day the other week. Well I didn't really make it, I just decorated it. Helen had pre-made the blank tags before we got there. Needs a hole and ribbon to finish.

Drawn on my tablet. I bought another book about drawing. The new one is called '20 ways to draw a cat and 44 other awesome animals' by Julia Kuo. It's not a step by step book about how to draw but it shows how you could draw the same animal in different ways. The giraffe above is my interpretation of one shown in the book.
