FINISHED MY 2011 NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION OF A SKETCH A DAY!!!
Thanks everyone for hanging out for the ride and enjoying the adventures of Cally and her companions.
I'll be putting together all the skecthes into a book to be printed and available.

If anyone knows a good/inexpensive online printer (under $20 to print each book), let me know! I'm looking to do just around 370 pages, full color, approx. 5x7 (manga size). I found one that'll do it for $20 each, but their correspondance isn't very reassuring.
I've seen many do the drawing a day thing and always thought that'd be great way to keep loose and improve with practice and all that...you know....etcetera etcetera...but ME?!

My art is like my writing...I need to paraphrase (simplify) more often...get to the point...besides that, my 'sketch stage' sucks.
I'll also start trying out the twitpic thing...which is connected through twitter.
So yeah...that's that...here's my first one to start the year off:
