More than a sketch but not quite a masterpiece, that's a doodle and I love to doodle. My subjects are often robots, cool shapes, and cartoons. Working out, and running is my personal time to myself. Just let my ipod play and push myself a little further every time. I have done comedy at open mics. It is one of the most terrifying and gratifying things I have done.
