I took care of my artist self and was well rewarded! I went to the local Sketch Meet, organized by a fellow alum, and it was fantastic. A room full of people there for no other purpose than to draw. So we drew, drew all at the same table, drew in chairs around this table, and drew in tables next to this table. It was a mini draw-a-thon. The Octobeak is the result of my creative energies. He is the king of this rock!
