Inky sketches and a mouse

I have been continuing to sketch with inks. Starting off with this rather coy birdie. I quite like the unforgiving nature of the ink strokes, this means that I have to work with my so-called mistakes, rather than reach for an eraser.
I have been using old copies of BUST and Selvedge magazines for sketching inspiration. Some are more successful than others. The ink colour washes remind me of old children's books.
Finally I had a request for another mouse - though not filled with catnip this time. This little fella was made at a chilly stitch 'n' bitch. After sampling some cheese he will be off to his new home tomorrow.
