hands drawn

both my mother and mother's mother were elementary school teachers. as a result, there was always a plethora of crafty teaching supplies laying around, including reams of paper. i have happily inherited a stack of lined newsprint used for practicing handwriting. its great for simple sketching. plus, i like how it has a bit of an old-school, retro look to it.
since there is so much of it, i don't feel the self-imposed pressure to make my drawings "perfect"; consequently, i'm making playful, loosely drawn lines...
