Sunday Sketches


It's time for another week of doodling and I'm looking forward to seeing what each of you have come up with.  I've been exploring with my doodles lately, can you tell?  I still need to practice sketching typewriters.  For some reason, I've had this recent fascination of old ones and in fact snapped pictures of a few spotted over the weekend.

  10. Sophia,
    Happy Easter, my friend. I so love this. The background and the simplicity of the old fashioned type writer....all make for an adorable illustration.
    The wallpaper with a slight color adds so much to this - really cute!
    This would be a neat blog header, too!
    Have a great day! Thanks again for hosting.
    ps - did you get my email?
