I did this a few weeks ago when I got on a Tori Amos kick and never got around to posting, though I can’t remember why now. I used to be obsessed with her music, I miss the love affair I once had with her lyrics… My new life mission is to listen to her again more frequently.

Started listening to Fiona Apple again today and she inspired me to finish my fish. I usually want to draw happy things when I listen to Fiona Apple, so it was a good match.

I was laid up for a week with bronchitis and made some progress on my fish becusse I was going crazy with boredom. I’ve had bronchitis before but swear it’s NEVER knocked me on my ass like this. I think I’ll make it, though.
I AM slightly reevaluating my plan to colo in the fish though lol.
An artist I follow, kimberly80 on deviant art, did a wonderful warrior sketch (give credit ya’ll!). I was inspired by it and the lyrics to a Regina Spektor song.

Funny enough, my friend’s original art piece she commissioned turned up in the mail, so now I have an extra one of these lying around. I love drawing zentangles, but it’s not exactly something I want to hang on my walls lol, so dunno what to do with it.
First commission got lost in the mail, so here’s try #2. Painful lesson I guess in not being a cheap ass and always insuring your shit when you mail it. Super stressed about misc things anyway though so it was good timing to be forced to zentangle, even if it’s done out of anger.
