I am a people watcher of all races, cultures, sizes, and age. I am a lover of the human spirit.
When I create a character, it's usually someone that I've been carrying around in my head for
a while and I've just got to see what they would and will look like on paper. I did this for Watercolor Wednesday.
I'm still working on somethings, but here it is. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Yes, your drawings, your characters, they are giving good feelings always. I have a curiosity: did you ever design a wicked character, anyone really bad?
