We Doodle sketch

One of the insta-sketches I did during a game of We Doodle for the iPad. Hooked on We Doodle (my friend Errol's fault). Finding it very good at forcing me to sketch quickly, focusing on the essence and not worrying about being perfect. The sketch above: the word was "couch" and I added a big arrow, pointing to the couch. Yes, I could have drawn the couch without the woman on it but it was more fun to include her. :-)
