I'm back!

I'm back from a long haitus! We moved to a new apartment, which as you know is an exhausting process. Since then, I've been suffering from a malady almost every blogger experiences at some point - the "why-do-I-even-bother-no-one-cares-what-I-write-except-my-parents" bug.

Now I have a new Etsy commission that I'm excited to share with...uh, whoever is out there.

This sweet couple is the customer's parents. That's quite a dress, isn't it? I really like the way the bottom part looks. Drawing the lace is going to be a challenge because it will mean a lot of negative drawing (drawing around white space). Luckily the customer ordered a large 11x14 size, so I have plenty of room for all this detail. I've already off to a good start on the couple's faces.

Each of their faces is only 1 inch wide!

(By the way, thanks for your feedback on a fabric for my cubicle. I chose a fabric and put it up, and I'll take a picture of it soon!)


  1. Oh, wow- this is going to be a LOVELY drawing!!!! I just love their faces so much- and the dress! And you had better keep blogging, because I'm here and I love seeing what you have to say!

  2. That is a great dress, and it looks like its going to make a great drawing!

  3. If their faces are only an inch wide, imagine how small they'll be after you draw them!


Thank you for leaving a comment! I read every single one!
