Drawing with Flu

When you have the influenza You can do a few things...You can sleep if your nose says yes (and my nose says NO and every 3 minutes I cough and cough, bleah), You can watch TV...but watching TV doesn't relax me..or you can read books or you can draw. I read and I draw, on my sofa


my world is full of strange people, fun people that live into the flowers and around the flower and on trees. My flu, I know, fly away if I draw! bye bye...
