Sisters Have Weird Ideas

This is the first of four behind-the-scenes posts about the Dragonvine story I've been sharing on Instagram. The story started last October as my Inktober project and I just posted sketch #60--it's finished! Here's how the idea was--pardon the pun--hatched:

You can see all the original sketches on my Instagram account under #dragonvinestory or on my Dragonvine Pinterest board!

Catching Up...

Another piece from last month! It had been sitting in my sketchbook for a while, so  I decided to give it some digital color.
Have you been following my sketch-a-day story on Instagram? Here's the first picture reworked with digital color and a fun texture. Look for more of this personal project in the next month or so!

Speaking of projects, I've also given my site a mobile-friendly overhaul--stop by and take a look!

Last month I did this series of illustrations with my Storybird audience in mind. I'm not exactly sure what's happening, but I hope it looks like an adventure! What do you think the story is?

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!
