First time attempting to draw ornamental typography.

The base letters are traced, I don't have that kind of skill.. YET, ha.

I am liking the hair look, it's a short assignment but I want to continue exploring this fairytale idea in these three letters.

I've got this one idea of floating female hands playing the letters as string instruments, I might do it, but I don't want to over do it. Maybe I should just leave it at this but clean it up a little.

Time is so much better spent when spent cnstructively first and fleetingly second.

I like this! FUN!

More secret sketches

Right, so I'm not really sure where this came from, but I like it! I hope I can develop this and have some nicely rendered drawings in this style. Why did I draw bubbles and plaid eyes?? I don't know but it was FUN.

I've been thinking about my new years resolutions and although I don't believe typing them down will actually make them happen, I need to keep repeating them to myself and take action, which I hopefully plan to do as it would only benefit me and make me happier so whatsda holdup?


(1) Do some sort of sports or activity at least once a week.
(2) Eat more balanced meals.
(3) Use the craft and book making materials I HAVE before buying MORE.
(4) Learn pattern making and sewing clothes.
(5) Finally get my driver's licence.
(6) Not care so much about what others think of me.
(7) Be a bit of a bitch.
(8) Wear makeup.
(9) Watch good and life changing movies.
and finally
(10) Like myself a little.

Haha, "get a job" should be on the list but I think that is a given, so is being more independant and learn to play the mandolin.

Here's a quote I found while looking through "Glamourai", it was great so I am posting it:

"every creature on earth has approximately two billion heartbeats to spend in a lifetime. you can spend them slowly, like a tortoise, and live to be two hundred years old, or spend them fast, like a hummingbird, and live to be two years old."

New Year

Ok so it's not great to be posting drawings done the previous year, I should be drawing new stuff already!
Kitty is gone, I finally sold her, I hope it was the right decision...
