Hello Dreamers! Within our friend group, we all have the art friend. This just so happens to be me. I, not long ago, got a 20 paged sketchbook. It didn't even last me a month. Currently I have a 60 paged one which has a character I am working on a called Ilana Dupreé who was mentioned in my last article (make sure to check it out). Enough talking (or writing), here it is; The struggles of being the 'Art Friend'...
