I like your work a whole lot, but I know what you mean about hating everything you draw... I can't seem to stop either. Even if I get really discouraged for a bit. But this is really a lovely drawing, you shouldn't be so hard on it!
I like that drawing board thingie she has, have you ever had any thing similar? I have some big boards for clipping sketchpads onto, but that sure looks a whole lot more handy. I dig the stack of books next to the bed. My by-the-bed book stack just keeps getting taller and taller. That goes for both sides of my bed. XD
