Thanks for the friendship. Never been to California? If you're ever in southern California I would suggest Balboa Park. It's in San Diego. There are plenty of museums, botanical gardens and usually events going on. It's one of my favorite places. The old buildings are great to look at, too. http://www.balboapark.org/
I found the drawing online, but I liked it because it's similar to a lot of the stuff I do myself, except that I rarely have the patience to finish mine with color. I was being lazy, but if you're just curious whether I'm an artist, I am.
