My coworker Med and I have been participating in the sketch marathons at Sketchoholics. They are great fun. One of my attempts got a shout-out from Bobby Chiu himself and I swooned, because he is amazing. Here is his work if you haven't seen it. The little lion got the most votes and upgraded me to a level 2 sketch-artist. Hopefully if I can find the time there will be more sketching today.
Oh and I almost forgot, the themes were "garden spirit" and "action pose"
