I make sketches whenever I find something inspiring and touching. Those moments filter through my mind and create a small world in my sketch book.

Santa in the car!

Last week, we were driving on the street. When I looked through the rear view mirror, I found a Santa Claus-looking old guy in the car behind us! He wore a black clothes and a baseball cap, but he couldn't hide his  beautiful white long beard... I told Maya that Santa is behind us. She looked back and was so surprised. Then, we guessed that he came to check all the kids in San Francisco are being good or not secretly! So Maya behaved very nice in the car, while the car was behind us. ^^
