So, I very recently left my job! I was working at a certain McRestaurant but I'm now free and have thus returned to creative projects. The next few posts are drawings and doodles from my sketchbook - they're my way of getting me back into the art groove before I move on to my Master's in Fine Art in September! I'm very excited to share all my big, new and exciting work when I return to Hereford College of Arts, but for now I have small and simple projects to be playing around with. I hope you like!
