Enjoying Free Art

I was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, a city best known for being the title of a Billy Joel song and the birthplace of Amanda Seyfriend. Located 90-miles west of Manhattan and 60-miles north of Philadelphia, Allentown (or A-town as no one calls it) is a great spot for a freelance writer who sometimes needs to get to a city for a meeting or job or cheese steak.

Daily Transmission #35: Fairy Warrior

Click to make it big, print it out and color as you wish. I’d love to see your finished product. Send me the results: Dan@PowerPencils.com.

Happy Saturday!
