TeeTOTALer: Someone who is Totally abstinate from alchol.


Colored Pencil

Not completely satisfied with this tried to enhance color, to give it a little bit more life. My scanner & I seem to have limited abilities.

Hi Jo, great drawing, really says a lot! I love a good character. And I KNOW what you mean about scanners and colored pencil - I've been struggling with it too. What I think happens is when you go too light in an area, it just reads as white. I always have to make a lot of adjustments to any of my scans, and the more saturated drawings always work better. Keep it up!

Excellent Jo--looks so much like my first grade teacher. Love her facial expression and proper posture.

Very cute! I like the word play. And the stripey wall paper is the perfect background note.

Hey Jo! the details in this are fabulous! The crook of her finger, the claws on the settee and the whole parlour is wonderful. What a clever and wonderful idea!!! I love this!
