A Present with Heart

01

A couple of weeks ago it was my girl friend’s birthday. Every year, for almost all special occasions, we each do our best to¬†prepare a hand made gift for each other, as one of our presents. My go to is usually origami or paper craft in some form, however, now that I’ve exhausted that medium, I thought I should shake things up a bit¬†with an A3 sketch.

Beyond a few decorative hearts and patterns, each little doodle represents a memory or something special we have shared together. I was definitely relieved when she loved it, and now it decorates her uni room, 400km away from where I live.
