Wonderful of you to drop by @road2horizon! The sketch is mine, done quickly with some Copic-style markers (Ohuhu brand). Boys and girls can get up to a lot of mischief, and I certainly draw upon my experiences as a boy for some stories. ;) All the best in the new year!

I can see the breezy dome of groves,
The shadows of Deering's Woods;
And the friendships old and the early loves
Come back with a Sabbath sound, as of doves
In quiet neighborhoods.
And the verse of that sweet old song,
It flutters and murmurs still:
"A boy's will is the wind's will,
And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts."

My Lost Youth
