A few Drawings

Here are two of the drawings I've been doing in a Bolivian theme. We lived in La Paz, Bolivia for nearly 5 years. I loved it.
The first one drawing is of a Bolivian girl knitting with a llama in the countryside. Young girls like this often tend sheep and llamas far out in the countryside (el campo). The other is a young Bolivian girl, (campesina, of a humble farming lifestyle, who continue to dress in the older traditional Aymaran fashion.) For some reasons the drawings are very blurry here. Sorry about that.
Children's illustrating can be a challenging field. It's not for the faint of heart. On several lists lately we've been discussing how difficult it can be to sharpen our skills, keep up with marketing and ask for appropriate pay for our work. I've been doing this for years now, and it doesn't seem any easier, but I love it.
