Stumbled across a “Freakshow” at London Wonderground, Southbank and I couldn’t resist going in to check it out.  So glad I did because it was SO MUCH FUN! These are only a few shots of the day. We also went to see Sensational Butterflies (photos here)

Visited Highgate Cemetery today and it was really lovely.  Took about 200 photos! If you’re living in or around London I highly recommend you visit, they do a guided tour which is very interesting.
If you’d like to see more of the photos I took (don’t worry, I edited them down to 50) then head on over to my Flickr

For years I’ve wanted to do a full on Addams Family illustration but could never get it down. This is a reaaaally rough sketch but I think this might be my year *hopefully doesn’t jinx it*

CALL FOR ENTRIES
Hello everyone! The Ladies of Literature project is pleased to announce that we’re beginning work on Volume 2! We’re hoping to make this book even bigger and more beautiful than Volume 1. We’ve invited our Volume 1 veterans to come back to contribute, but we’re looking for even more fresh talent to fill the pages!
For those who don’t know, Ladies of Literature Volume 1 was an illustration anthology that celebrated our favorite female book characters and authors.
This time around, we’re still working with the same premise, but we’re placing a stronger emphasis on illustrations that tell stories. We want well-composed illustrations that showcase exactly why you fell in love with your character or author. Make us want to pick up their stories for ourselves—like the ultimate book recommendation.
The book is going to be Kickstarted to cover cost of printing and compensation for all contributing artists. All artists will get a copy of the book. Any remaining Kickstarter and book sale funds will be donated directly to in-classroom childhood literacy projects via DonorsChoose.org.
(That being said, obviously this is a project that may include copyrighted characters so if we run into legal trouble, we’ll have to shut the whole thing down.)
We’re aiming to have 75 artists in total so if you’re interested in participating, fill out this Google Form with your name and portfolio by AUGUST 31, 2014. We’ll notify our final choices by mid-September. Thank you! So excited to see all of your work!


Whoa! Time flies! 11 more days to apply!
