Hello my dearest readers,
Tonight I have just a quick update, but lots of pictures. I’ve been doing some character sketches in my moleskine for an idea I had for a story/comic/something. It’s about a crew of wayward airship pirates and their quests to glory. Well, it’s more than that. But it’s going to be steampunk-ish, without being too over-the-top.
The tree above is something I did with watercolors, and I was surprised at how much fun I had doing it. Normally I prefer acrylics over watercolors, but whatever I did this time seemed to work, and I’m really happy with how this came out.
I’m also planning to try doing some cartography work on leather, using acrylic paints to do some maps, perhaps of Westeros or other familiar fantasy places. I recently saw a map on Tumblr done that way, and loved how it came out.
In the Etsy shop, I have a new dice bag available – the Freestanding Dice Bag in Suede. I made one version in brown suede, and was ecstatic when it sold just a few hours after I listed it. It’s been re-listed, and I plan to make a second version in the smoky gray suede to list as well. Those pictures are shown below.
