An Artist's Desk... continued!

The continuing saga of... An Artist's Desk. Here we have my awesome Oberon iPad cover, well-loved and well-used for many years. 

Personally, I think all that paint just adds to its character.

Anyway, look up Oberon's tooled leather products.  They have greatly enriched our lives!

But by NOW, we are warmed up! Here's one I did - we all had one minute to sketch FAST FOOD!
