Oh how I love the old-fashioned feeling of a hand-drawn sketch such as this one. But a question if I may: there are the initials 'MM' in the lower-right hand corner; is that your real name or something?

That is. Man. I can't even. This rocks my socks. I used to watch my mom draw stuff just like this. Well, not watch so much as "spy on," and find packed away in her old college stuff. And Tom Sawyer had illustrations in this style. Ohhhhhhhhh there's the nostalgia right square in the brain, ow ow ow

CU, how long have you been drawing? I know time is no way to measure skill and effort, but I was just wondering.
