I hadn’t realised I’d let so much time pass without posting. My wee study is more like a documentation of me improving my art over quarantine. I can personally see huge leaps of skilling up in each piece. Life is soon returning to normal and I’m not all that sure I want too. Le sigh.
So I’m deep cleaning for new arrivals in my house, and whilst going through the myriad of note books, and papers I keep, I came across a wee snippet written out on scrap paper complete with a drawing. It gave me giggle, and I hope it gives you, my readers a bit of giggle too. … Continue reading Scribbles on Scrap Paper
I constantly use this blog as one of my sources in my research, and surprisingly this particular blog post. You’d be shocked how often I have to look up the kind of food that folks in Regency times ate. Back in my Weebly days I’d promised to share some of my research. Regency times and … Continue reading Food in Regency times
I’ve reposted so many of this guy’s vids on Facebook. It’s like he knows me personally. The struggle is real people!

Sorry, it was a weird feeling reading something with such familiar characters, but they aren’t quite themselves yet. The writing is very cringey, though I do believe this is a piece from 2008. It’s not … Continue reading That feeling you get…
So I’m stumbled upon this tidbit in my travels on the internet, and I thought I would share. Isn’t it interesting how one person can affect culture and fashion for so long. Source: Why Male Clothes Are Mostly Drab & Plain
Okay, so been watching art vids on YouTube all day, reading, with occasional writing of drabbles inserted here and there. I’m a bit sore and achey from staying up all night drawing. Definitely did not have that happen when I was in high school. The art vids have me feeling insecure about my art skills, … Continue reading I’m guilty of enjoying lockdown.
So I’ve never been that happy with my portraits of Tegwin. Classically beautiful is surprisingly hard to draw. I always liked to draw interesting faces, with wrinkles or freckles. Tegwin is an interesting character, but seemingly tiny and delicate and of course a flawless complexion (don’t worry kids, she’s no Mary Sue.) This is one … Continue reading Happy accident
