  1. Wonderful sketches as always. I think we don't need a picture from the dog. Your drawing is clear enough! Did I say that I love your style ;-)

    >Your drawing is clear enough!
    i wasn't sure, as the light/shadow contrast is really pushed to an extreme level.

    you might like the paintings of Bato Dugarzhapov, he paints so that things are both lost but also super clearly there, both at once
