Just found your site through Daniela's gallery and your sketches are AMAZING girls. That's what I get for not being around the last few weeks on vacation and what-not. There you go starting websites and doing sketches and just being FABULOUS! These are incredible, your site is incredible and I am so excited to have found it.

I played with the sketch this week and will have to play with some previous ones when I have a second, they are too good not to.

Hugs!!!
