scribbling

While looking for a sound and complete edition of The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame for a Christmas gift I found a yummy old, but cared for, hardcover with illustrations by Tasha Tudor. Needless to say that edition will remain on our bookshelf.

Here are a few scribbles I have done lately from her drawings....it's most fun. I claim no originality here. Just the pleasure of pencil on paper and an imagination for what the woodland creatures might be up to as I draw.
