[listening to "let it snow" by boyz ii men]

today is the last day we're taking #sketchesforhaiyan donations. the response from folks to donate is so amazing and humbling. if i could keep it going for longer, i would. but it's really taken up a lot of my time that i haven't really had the opportunity to do much else. i've squeezed in Thanksgiving and decorating the tree. but other than that i've just been drawing.

i've really had some fun times drawing these and i'm really diggin drawing on this brown paper. gives me an extra dimension to work with that i don't get with white paper. so before i dig into more sketches today, i thought i'd post a couple of em. these 2 drawings are of 2 different girls that love Princess Sofia the First (a Disney Jr. show, in case ur not familiar). they were requested by 2 separate people and since they've been posted, i've gotten even more requests to do these! i know that the #sketchesforhaiyan are supposed to be headsketches only but i didn't really think i could convey that these girls were a specific character. so i had to draw a little more of them. i'll let u in on a secret - i've come to enjoy drawing kids with their crazy teeth! their permanent teeth are fighting for dominance over their baby teeth, and they're winning. and when u draw their smile w/ their crazy teeth just right, the resemblance of the drawing comes across much easier. =P

so if ur still considering getting a sketch, today's the last day to get it in! please consider donating. for all those that have already donated, thank you so so much from the bottom of my humble heart. i'm truly amazed at the generosity of people.
