You have fantastic talent!  I LOVE what you do!  Do you draw out your designs in rough draft first, or just go for it with colored pencils?  And are the white areas just not covered or are they done with white pencil?  Thanks so much.. I have tons to learn!

This is very inspiring. I find your work very engaging and wonderous. Just enough obfuscation to keep the motor running over itself. Wewt!
