I have a soft spot for photorealistic pencildrawings... I can't believe how good some of her work are, the girl with the big glasses , the leg-letters... She is also one of the few I know that has several different styles she is equally good at, even though I left out some of her "computerized" drawings that I don't like so much. And oh, she has a website with nothing on yet : www.jocandraw.com
