Climbing Ruins

I was able to spend a day exploring ancient temples in Asia a few months ago. This is basically a self-portrait! It was so interesting to see all the elaborate carvings.

Very Odd!--an Austen/Potter Mashup

In the same spirit as my Happy Thought Indeed Austen/Milne mashup, here Lady Catherine meets Jemima Puddle-duck and her ducklings. Only four of them hatched, which Jemima says is because of her nerves, but Lady Catherine knows that she has always been a bad sitter.

If you explore my Instagram archives you can see the sketch for this piece--it's been lurking in my mind for months!

The Lantern Tree

I have a long to-do list right now, so naturally I'm inspired to do anything but that. This little idea was quite an effective method of procrastination. I can't decide if I like the pale or dark background better--what do you think?

Prints (& more!) of both versions are available at my Society6 shop!

Anne and the Doctor

Another fandom mashup--Doctor Who and Anne Steele! All the text was taken from Sense and Sensibility, so I think it's safe to say that Anne would consider the Doctor a potential beau if he ever had the misfortune to meet her. :)

Catching up!

The last month or so has been really busy for me, but here are a few recent pieces, all pen and ink linework with digital color. a giant terrarium, perhaps? Growing up, I'd scour the woods for interesting lichens, and I think something like giant pixie cup lichen found its way into this picture! Check out my Tumblr for a process gif.

Winter's just starting, but it's never too early to think about spring, right?

If Rapunzel had a smartphone, I think she would have been addicted to posting Instagram selfies and surfing Pinterest for embroidery designs and hair tutorials. You can see the colored pencil version of this on my Instagram--no selfies! ;)
