My first love is pencil sketches, but since this is a sewing blog, I figured I'd put the sewing artwork first. I guess it's not exactly artwork, since they're technical drawings. Maybe I should work on my fashion drawing techniques. Then I could draw pattern envelope covers that actually represent what's in the envelope. Now there's a novel idea :o)
These are created using the vector graphic software, Inkscape. What's funny for me about drawing digital art is that my pencil-holding drawing hand is my left. My mouse-clicking drawing hand is my right. Ambidexterity, here I come!

And here are a few of the sewing-themed pencil sketches
Okay, not sewing related, but awfully cute ;o)

And since I love pen-and-ink, I've done a few of those, too.
