Benny, Jack, and Moe Throw Down A Mad Line Dance


I'm still a little busy with a new consignment order, (84 items!) and my apartment looks like a victim of a massive printer explosion. My back is paying the price, but I've got a big smile on my face, why I daresay even my antique toy collection seems to be smiling. When I go off to work at my completely non-creative job, I continue to snag any scrap to doodle on. It's the itch I must scratch, and one day I will do it full time. I so hope.

UPDATE: it was not 84 items, but 108 items. Even better!

84 items- WOW! you go girl!
Sorry your back is so affected.
I love your sketch- LOVE! And to be putting these sketches on scrap paper- recycling- good job!
This one looks very mixed media, just by your choice of scraps. Love the dancing boys.
Have a great weekend!
