2 livres et 2 essais

My last two reads. The book by Carlos Ruiz Zafon was ok, but a bit long in the end, for me.
The Atkinson one was awesome, it's the second book I read by this author and I really love her mind and her style! It's funny, and sometimes completely awful, and never boring.
I had fun drawing this page - thses days I spend a lot of my free time trying to draw my sister's wedding invitation.
It seems I can't get her face right, I must have drawn her 50 times, and it's never really good.

I tried this, but they didn't like it much, apparently.
And I've tried this :

And this drawing is the first of a very long list that I like a little. I'm beginning to recognize her face.
If they don't like it, I'll try with another photo - I think I'll never manage a better drawing than this one from this particular photo.
Maybe I should have told them I'm a complete beginner at portraits, before accepting the task...
