I was contacted by an agency to potentially illustrate a series of strong minority women for an all women's college. Though I wasn't picked for the end assignment, I'm grateful to my friends like Jora, who gave me permission to use their beautiful faces. She, like the others I will be sketching soon, was one of the kind souls who befriended me during my time in NYC. I've always had a tendency to be quite timid and afraid of everything, but she inspires me to be kind to others no matter how different your personalities are (AKA The Golden Rule!).
As for my sketches, I've been more diligent about putting at least one new entry in my book per day. Because?! Practice makes perfect. Keep at it, kids!
