Sketch #182


  1. How cute is that? Funny, I almost always flip a sketch, but it never occurred to me on this one. Great job and now you have me thinking of other ways to play with it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Love the vertical take on the sketch and your little worm is too cute. I love that cartridge. It is by far the one I use the most.

  3. Great job on flipping the sketch! What a cute worm! WTG!!!
