Fishy pagoda

Sorry I haven't been drawing much these days. But if you stand by ... I have a drawing to share soon ... But for now, you're stuck with this. When I was in college, I owned a bubble-eyed goldfish. You know the ones that have transparent water balloons for eyes? (Stay with me, this is going somewhere). Well, I needed a backdrop for my aquarium and because I was a struggling student, I created my own with my number 2 pencil and some typing paper. So, this is the drawing I did for my goldfish, Bubbles. May he/she rest in peace.  (PS: Can you believe I still have this? I amaze myself sometime).

That is a really awesome drawing. I bet it looked great as the backdrop. Look forward to what you have coming up!

Very nice and precise, Joan. I still have old drawings, too...some dating back to the early 70's.

Can't wait to see what you post next...
