Cafe/Environment Drawing

Some cafe drawings of people around the school:




And a few environment sketches from around the school I did a few weeks back:








I feel like digging in through some of my past work from over the summer and posting it here.  Next week I'll try to upload some of those.

Cafe Drawing and Trees
