Desi Girl

Sketch

Besides the occasional doodle, the last time I diligently drew something was a human heart for my high-school biology class (or was that a map of Pakistan for Pakistan Studies?). Honestly, I have never given sketching a second thought, until a few days back, when sitting idle with a pencil and a sketch pad, I had this weird itch to draw something. The first thing that came to mind was a version of a simple Pakistani girl, her hair tightly braided into a traditional pigtail, looking out towards the horizon at endless possibilities, wondering what the future may hold for her.

I know it’s amateurish and lacks any finesse, but I am proud of it nonetheless. Enjoy!
