Jennifer Maestre's pencil art
I'm always amazed when I see her fabulous creations, and her urchins are darling. That's your first impression--then you are awed when you realize see the skill that went into making it.
I won't rave here too long--your time will be much better spent looking at her art for yourself. She has pictures posted at her flickr site, her web site (you gotta see this site), and her etsy site.
Go forth and be amazed!
