The Royal Winter Fair I

Busy as I am I probably won't be able to attend the Royal Winter Fair this weekend. I really do enjoy going though. Canada's big agricultural fair, it's something of a tradition that I go for at least one day to do some sketching-we used to go all the time in school. I believe last year I went like everyday or something. I actually did a bunch of drawing at the Royal before Sheridan, and it helped me get in! Unfortuately the fair also aggrevates my breathing and is full of big meaty sandwiches which I can't eat. Oh well, potatoes then. Maybe next weekend. If I do, I'll take pictures.

Yes, in lieu of new stuff, old winter fair drawings. 2002?
