  6. Thank you so much for the mention and I'm glad I inspired you to sketch in ink!! Your frog is brilliant - I love the composition - those feet are so cute. Funny enough I did a frog last week which I haven't blogged yet as I'm about 10 sketches ahead of myself in blogging terms!!
    I hope we'll see many more ink sketches from you soon!
