No time to say Goodbye. Hello! I'm late I'm late I'm late!

Ah! After promising to finish that Great Expectations piece I didn't do it! I was so busy last week!

I just got back from NYC for the licensing show, which was a really great learning experience. It was really interesting seeing the varying degrees of artistic skill and ability at the show. It seems like a great way to earn more money from art. All in all a really great research trip!

Thanks to Andrea for letting me crash at her place too! <3

Oh! Also had the Gnomon workshop this weekend, usually this is a pretty great event, this time I was a little disappointed. They had a great lineup of speakers, a lot of people I was really excitied to hear from, but unfortunately there were very few demos this year. I'm not sure I will attend another event :|

Sorry sorry sorry for not finishing the painting! Here's more development on an older painting I did for the caveboy story, the one where he's lost in the forest. My boyfriend suggested maybe indicating more of a transition between light and dark. I think it worked out pretty well. I'll be sure to finish the Great Expectations one soon! I'll post some development for Estella too.

Great Expectations

A sketch I did in my Molskine, I've always wanted to illustrate a Love story, and Decided to try Great Expectations. Estella is so cold to Pip and yet he loves her. The idea of a girl born to be a heartbreaker is so intriguing. I'm going to try and finish this sometime in the coming week.
