It’s a blustery, cold March day here. Oh, how quickly we forget… it’s 43° here, a month ago that would have been a heat wave.

I don’t like doing that, because it really detracts from the drawing, but really have no choice. I was really surprised to see how many people were using my Friesian stallion drawing, but the majority of them were using it for their profile pictures, so no harm done.
