do not listen to the blackbird

here are my new collection of illustrations!
all were started from my random doodles on note sketch paper and my keens towards metallic tape! as ive been taught to use biro a lot rather than proper drawing pen, and found out that this pen can actually be as amazing as the expensive ones (and it goes along with water colours paint too!).

'trouble singing'

'i heard'

'sink in'

'empty thoughts'

this is how it looks when its framed up! (:

available in various sizes, here.
