What's This, A Pencil?

After a solid month away from the easel, I finally picked up a pencil today to draw. Not for long, because naps are short these days, but it was still good to get something done. I've been getting really excited about this crocodile drawing I set up, though I know it will be difficult. You can see the progress I made below.

For those of you who don't already know, I took the past month off because I had a baby. I'll be getting back into drawing slowly, at least until he starts sleeping through the night. He is adorable and doing very well.

In other news, I had the privilege of serving as a juror for the Los Alamos County Fair fine art competition last weekend. There were tons of great works from young and emerging artists.
