Here you will find artwork that was created with nothing more than a pencil and paper (and sometimes charcoal, ink, pastels, etc.)... and the creativeness of my fingers of course! I like to call this old-fashioned or traditional art, which it has become due to the advancement of technology.

I apologize for the lack of artwork in this section. I always say that I need to get back into my traditional art, but it never seems to happen. Maybe someday....
