"Love Sketch" by Matthew Woodson

"Love Sketch" by Matthew Woodson

Finding illustrations like those of Matthew Woodson is why I (admittedly intermittenly) do this website.  His work seems fresh and relevant – small moments of beauty in a dreary world.  Definitely bookmark this one, and check out his blog if you get a chance.
