The Black Mirror

An image from an ongoing personal project. The title is in a state of flux, but this is where it's at right now. Set during the reign of Elizabeth 1st is all I'm kind of going to say now! Part of my ongoing obsession with all things 16th century and Tudor costume, although that's not really apparent from this pic!!. :)

PS, a reminder I'll be at NICE this weekend in Kettering Northants selling, buying, chatting and looking.

Book of Stuff

I'm jolly excited to say that hopefully before Christmas I shall have my own collection of arty stuff on the shelves; what they call a 'monograph' in very posh expensive book circles. Published by the very nice people at SQP, I will have my very own ISBN number! :) So start saving those pennies, sheckels, dimes, dinars, etc (not too many of them!) for a book full of women 'doing stuff'. This is the mock-up cover, and I'll post more details as and when they become available, you know the drill.

And I thought I'd post this doodle I did a couple of weeks ago, inspired by a haircut! I originally gave her a ciggy, but changed it to a cheroot, as it seemed more appropriate. This was a real quickie, just to get started one morning, and this is the actual size! Sometimes it's quicker to work small and 'res-up' later, but I didn't here... doh, so a sketch it remains...
