Copenhagen Culture Night, and an unrelated Paris question

Still recovering from Copenhagen’s Culture Night (Friday) and have no sketches to show for it, although it was fun surfing the tide of humanity in and out of concerts, Danish military drills, museums, 12th century ruins under a palace, the halls of power at the Danish Parliament (think: … Continue reading

Sketch of the Day: Birds and Botany
