It's been forever and a day since I posted so here's some practice sketches of expressions from photos

Had fun doing a "self portrait" - does it still count as a self portrait if I drew it from a photo?

Can't sleep so here's the next bag I'm painting. A friend suggested I paint the black hole discovered this year so that'll be fun to tackle. :da_grin:

More practice sketches. One is a yawning jaguar and the other I started doing a face from this site (, but now I'm tired and noses are hard so I'll probably finish it tomorrow.

Did another animal sketch for my probably-never-going-to-be-a-comic, the MC who's animal form is a jaguar and I'm not even attempting the spots this late at night.

Finally finished sealing my first painted tote bag and it looks pretty cool. Now what to do for the next one?

So I've had an idea for a shapeshifter comic for ages and I finally started doing sketches for it. Mostly the characters' animal forms because animals can be expressive as hell. References from @hourlyfoxbot

Badly photographed world building sketches for a comic that may or may not ever get made.

Been sick so a FB friend asked for a dramatic reenactment of it, I drew this.

This whole re-learning how to draw thing is frustrating and I can tell it's going to be frustrating all the way through, if only because I am never so irrationally hard on myself as I am when it comes to drawing shit.

Decided to practice drawing references for the time being.

Finally got to finish painting this, now hopefully I can get the paint to set right and not ruin the whole thing

Today's the last day of the art show I'm part of - wonder if they'll let me keep the Works List cover since it has my painting on the cover?

After like 7 months of build up for the show, my brain is fried and I'm wandering around the gallery like a ghost.

I suck at intros, so in brief:

-Late 30's, she/her, creative mercenary (currently doing book covers for authors)

-Dabbles in: painting (mostly acrylics), photography, writing, drawing and comics

-Upcoming projects: Relearning how to draw, maybe trying my hand at comics again, zines
