Hi,  do you like my News Update Reporter...she is me in cartoon?
I have been sketching some Ladies and painting them or colouring
them in Photoshop...
I had a session at school that had me sketching 25 of these
so I feel quite comfortable now....What use to take me hours
to produce now takes me welllll a whole lot less ...lol
