Top knots

Just a silly top knot chart I made the other day in my sketchbook. I have baby fine hair, so I've only sported the Doughnut, but last week I chopped my hair off for summer, so no more top knots for me in a while. Which one would you be?

The Bitchface Queen

I had so much fun drawing Daenerys that I just had to continue with the theme and do a portrait of Cersei Lannister, the ultimate "Bitchface Queen" of Westeros. This weekend we didn't have an episode, so I'm in denial mode, but the wait is going to be worth it. Those who have read the books know it's going to be an EPIC one :D

I just chopped most of my hair off into a short bob, and it feels so liberating! I think I'm ready for summer. And here's a short bobbed girl from my sketchbook to start the weekend. Have fun!

Around the studio

This week's been all about a new exciting job, bad weather and cozy cats. I finally splurged and bought a Wacom Cintiq 13HD, and spent tome time making a DIY stand / protective cover for it. It helps me have a better posture while working, and I can slide the tablet underneath when I'm not using it to avoid Maggie using it as a napping spot. She's definitely more comfy on a rumpled mohair blanket while there are thunderstorms outside.

Have a great weekend everyone! :)

Cactus Flower

I don't know if you follow Gems, one of Mallory's wondeful blogs, but you should, it's always full of awesomeness and inspiration. Anyway, thanks to one of her movie posts, I watched this film called Cactus Flower from 1969, starring Goldie Hawn, Walter Matthau and Ingrid Bergman. The movie is quite charming but most of all, the cuteness of Goldie Hawn in this movie is unbelievable. She's just adorable in each and every scene, and she has the most awesome 60s short hairdo. Of course, I had to do a quick painting of her in my sketchbook.

Breaking Bad cross-stitch

I'm a HUGE Breaking Bad fan, it's my favorite show of all time, hands down. So when I came across these amazing Breaking Bad Iotacons by Andy Rash, I just knew I had to make them in cross-stitch, since it's basically the same as pixel art. I hadn't used thread and needle since I was about fourteen years old, but it's like riding a bike, you don't forget how to do it. This was so much fun to do and it will remind me of how awesome Breaking Bad is once it's over this year :(

Anyway, now I feel very tempted to do an Indiana Jones one. Or maybe just cross-stitch everything!

Wishing you a great start of the week with yet another gouache girl from the sketchbook.
