My 10-year-old daughter drew this cookie with a pencil and markers. When I first looked at it, I thought she had cut it out of a photo. I am impressed! The white highlights on the chocolate stripes really accent the dimensionality, but she said that part was an accident. I told her that fortunate accidents are a key component to many great works of art.

Here are a couple of house portraits I finished over the past few weeks. Both are in the 8 x 10 range. The second one below is actually a little longer than that; the house was so broad across the front that I had to increase the size a little for it to look right. Both were done with a combination of sumi ink/dip pens, and disposable drafting pens.
