Finally finished a commission using lyrics from “Bad Wine and Lemon Cake” by Amanda Palmer/The Jane Austen Argument. It only took me 2 weeks to getting around to finishing this commission from the beginning of September, so if you’ve requested something, just take your age and multiple it by the number of identified galaxies and divide by the number two – that is the approximate number of days it will take me to finish your request…. Just kidding – I really do have vet bills to pay off, so keep requesting!
Medium: Watercolor, Pen & Ink

I know the darkness pulls on you,
but it’s just a point of view.

Testing out some fonts and playing around with hair for a commission.
I lied. My watercolor test turned into an acrylic because I suddenly remembered I suck at watercolor. Not in a “oh, I’m fishing for compliments” way, either – I really suck at watercolor. A *bit* frustrated that one of my most simplistic paintings took 6 hours, but I have high hopes that Obama will stumble upon this and go “HOLY SHIT I NEED THIS CHICK TO PAINT ALL THE THINGS. And oh – she’s a librarian?? Well, she can be my personal librarian as well! FTW!!!”
Sorry, I’ve had wine.
And to help you get the hint, I’m testing out some new watercolors with a quick autumn scene. Now, vamoosh.
