A girl and her eye patch and her dragon

Sketch I did for fun.

Fun fact: When I was a kid I had to wear an eye patch for a while, which I thought was pretty awesome. It was a temporary facial paralysis (Bell's Palsy), which in my case was caused by nerve damage from chicken pox. I couldn't close of my eyes or move anything on one side of my face. I'm sure my Mom was terrified but people felt bad for me and gave me presents and I wore an eye patch and got to drink out of a straw (which apparently was some sort of exciting novelty?). I was young enough that I was not aware of and did not care about the way my face looked. The only thing I didn't like was getting up super early to go to appointments at the neurologist's.
