As a warm-up exercise, I've started doing ink drawings. Aside from being perpetually inspired by Jess Fink's artwork (nsfw), I found out that the bottle of black ink I bought recently (which is a different kind apparently) is water-soluble. Both of these are costume history inspired, naturally. The top of is a reference to the shepardess look from the Georgian (Rococo) period and the bottom is loosely based off the Crinoline period. I love how crinoline gowns POOF when the wearer sits or moves quickly. Both of these are for sale on my Etsy.
Etsy store, I was recently inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement (we're way past just protests since this is now an international affair) to thank anyone who chooses to buy from a small independent seller as opposed to a corporation. With that in mind, I'm giving a 10% discount on all purchases on my Etsy store when the coupon code "OCCUPY" is used. I'm also including a thank you sketch for every purchase.
