Pets, prints, nail-polish and some fiscal matters

I'm thinking of making a small collection of my sketchbooks available for purchase, (with the help of my wife who is a bookbinder), its only in the planning stages but it will not take to long time. I'm also planning to make some less expensive prints from my sketchbooks, I'll post things on my Shop, that still is development, and of course on my blog. No enough of me bantering, where's the picture you say. Old Linoleum print. Made this while taking my masters of fine arts Some sketchbook pets: how well do you know your Goethe?

    Good Morning,

    Thank you for these Very Silly Drawings. Once again your drawings have transformed my spirit from being very grumpy (I don't like going to work) to actually SMILING!

    It's exciting to see the way you contrast big open, empty figures with really detailed figures. Both hold their spaces so well. Usually all of my figures have the same level of detail. I'm learning so much from watching you.

    Hey, remember the pomander balls? I invited 15 little Girl Scouts yesterday afternoon to make them. We had SO MUCH FUN! The museum smells wunderbar.

    OK, off to the Long Island Expressway. :-(

    I'm allergic to nail varnish myself, probably from glueing Airfix models as a youth.
    Stef, hopefully we'll se some progress soon, if the result is good you might want to try as well?
    Thanks Ana
