New Sketchbook

When I was in New York last, I had lunch at Balthazar, and was very surprised and delighted when exiting the restaurant to find just outside their door a sidewalk vendor selling handmade sketchbooks! The books, made by "Luscious Paper", were beautiful, so beautiful that it's been sitting on my shelf untouched ever since my return. I'm used to drawing on cheap pads of paper, and this was such a change for me, but inspired by all the beautiful sketchbooks I've seen on the web (and even better, have held in my hands) this weekend I finally got it down and gave it a go. This is page 3.
