Best Friends by Sami Thorpe

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Drawn from a photo of my cousin and her faithful four legged friend many, many moons ago. It doesn’t contain all the detail I would have hoped for but I love it all the same.

Drawn onto medium surface cartridge paper using a mixture of 2b – 5b pencils.
