Brown paper bag memories

Well, not actually penned on a brown paper bag, but from a sketchbook--of brown recycled paper. Which, perhaps, was once a paper bag? Anyway, I've been meaning to do more of these and haven't had time, but I really like doing brown on brown sepia drawings. It has some of the stark contrast of black/white ink drawing, but it's just subtle enough that it makes you think of an old photo, and feels sort of subdued. I'm not sure how to quite explain it. All I know is I want to do more drawings like this. Sadly, pesky things like work, assignments, and the whole twenty-four hours in a day thing get in the way.
