New sketchbook 2 and an anniversary

The new sketchbook I mentioned in the last post is now sitting, finished on my nightstand, and I've been working through the new, new one. This is all stuff from my morning and nightly commutes on Bart, and Ritual sittings.
Also, the blog turned 2 last month. Time seems to fly so quickly these days, but sufficed to say I'm amazed how far I've come in the 24 months since starting The Iron Scythe.
I thank all of you who stop by the blog and read daily.
Here's to another great year.
Again, the sketches.

Congratulations J. 2 Years is a long time to keep up the blogging. Here's to another bunch of years.
This stuff is fantastic, I love the poses and attitude that you can always capture with such few lines. I'm going into my last year's almost all over...and almost all beginning.
Hope all is well with you, and hope to hear from you soon.
