well I like the succinctness of no proper comment but I
feel compelled to mention that this is another hundred year old drawing, one of the last before the 50 year hiatus.

I'm not a fan of raccoons. One attacked my dog. Or it might have been an opossum. I dunno, it was dark. But I feel okay about the animalistic profiling; they both have sharp nails.

But...I'm a fan of trees. And your tree is pretty with all its detail, even with that furry, long nailed creature peering out of it. So, I like this. Yup.

Okay, fine....your raccoon is eat up in detail. (Gosh, I talk to Rachel almost too much. Eat up? *sigh*)
You're a talented one, Katie...apparently for the last hundred years. :D

Animalistic profiling....:D
Yes you do seem to have a bit of Rachel
rubbed off on you, but you wear it well.
I like drawing trees. They don't have to look like
anything except..trees.
Yes, it's been a busy century.

I can't think of a nicer way to call me a copycat. :D

I did a sketch of a hummingbird and a lily on a twig recently. My twig turned out awesome!

not a copycat, just taking advantage of good influences.
See, that's what I mean about twigs.

Well, I still feel like a copycat but that's okay. I like trying my hand at things...gotta start somewhere. :shrug:

And yes, I think I could be happy just drawing twigs and sticks all my live long days...until I got bored of it. :roll:

Very good work, Katie. I like the composition and the hair. You have had traditional skill since very long time ago then. =D

well I have been drawing since forever, but it wasn't till I was in my 20s that my style matured at all.
And yes, my 20s were a hundred or so years ago.
Thank you Tom. :D

Slums are so disheartening, aren't they? But change is the
one constant we can rely on. Your new work is lovely.

I don't like raccoons. Why? Cause one hit me in my car...messed it up real bad. I felt bad about the raccoon too. But he hit me, I promise. And he was a mutant one..like 3 feet tall and scary as can be. Anyway, I've since made peace with my hatred...and guilt.
So this is real nice. You're talented...and have been for quite some time, it seems. :heart:

Oh I think I was more talented back then really. More up for a challenge anyway.
Thank you Rachel. Hatred..and guilt. :D
