My favorite thing to do ...
at 2 a. m. ........
sit down with a magazine and draw!
a glass of wine too !
and music .
so ... last night I was flipping through a copy of Vogue .
drew this lady .
but I had blank space .
On the cover of another magazine laying next to me ,,, were the words ....
Get sexy now

so I added it on the wall

Please tell me what you think
I am addicted to your comments
Should I put it in my Etsy shop ?
