Just a couple of doodle pages I’ve been messing with when I’ve been out of the house. I never leave home without the Note 10.1 now, it’s part of my messenger bag contents for the long haul, or until they bring out a better version.

I haven’t completely given up on I Dream of Dragons, hence the sketch….
