Another illustration for tonight, A lovely bottle of Absinthe!
I have updated any pics that were once horribly taken with my ipad camera, with proper scans (and for some reason, this changed the order of some of my posts, but at least they’re there). Also, I am finally happy with my illustration, Tiny Reader.
Yesterday was the day that one of my best friends in life had told me that her beloved cat had passed on. I knew her since they first got her ten years ago, and was as close to her as if she were one of mine. I can’t stand when people say the words, “it was just a cat” or “it’s just a dog”. When you feed them, clean up after them and love them every day, they become more. They are lives, and their significance should never be underestimated.
I’ll always miss the way her tail would fluff up like a raccoon’s when she was thrilled. I’ll miss the way she would get excited when I would visit like I was family. Nermal, sleep peacefully now. Love, your kitty auntie.
Since my dad unexpectedly passed away this past March, I’ve been devastated and still trying to bring order back into my life. I havent been able to bring myself to illustrate with my new lack of focus. It’s like when you watch a movie and get lost in it. No matter how hard I tried, it just wasn’t happening, and I would fall into a cycle of frustration.
Luckily, July came and my husband took me to a horror convention, Dark Carnival, to lift my spirits. I was able to meet my heroine, Abigail Larson(who was amazing and super sweet!), and was greatly inspired by her and the creepy surroundings of the con.
Without further adew, my first illustration back, of course inspired by the amazing Larson (https://www.facebook.com/abigaillarsonillustration)
