Informally formal

A new sketch for the new month. As I was drawing this, a line from the Pride and Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley kept popping up in my head. The one where it's noted that Elizabeth's hair looks "positively medieval." I like that scene a lot. The formality, informality, and character interactions.

Scarf Sketch

Sketching away :)

I've been drawing some new art cards for my Etsy shop. I like this sketch but I also might wind up erasing it so I'm posting it here before I decide what I'm going to do with it.

Just a girl in a scarf by a tree. :)

All Wrapped Up

When did I become so yarn obsessed?

Sometimes I get too wrapped up.

I just wanted to post an update as I haven't been keeping up with my blog. When I'm working on a project, I get so focused that I forget about a lot of other things. My latest project is re-knitting a cardigan I made where the sleeves were a bit too big.

It's really lovely sweater weather right now, too. Whenever I break from work, my eyes love to turn to my windows where I have a view of some gorgeously autumnal leaves.

Detective Strike

I'm over half-way through reading The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling) and I'm really enjoying it. Detective Strike reminds me of a cross between Mad-Eye Moody and Detective Bullock.

The weather has been a lot more pleasant recently and that's good for knitting. :)

It's been too long since my last blog post. I've been caught up in various projects. I actually really enjoy stepping away from the computer from time to time. It reduces stress and provides me with some clarity where I can just focus on my work.

Here's a sketch I've painted in between my other projects. I've got a comic that I'm working on and I'm designing a knit shirt for the summer. I'm currently re-knitting several inches of it as I changed how I want it to be shaped.
