The mother of dragons

This week I had the pleasure of taking part on the Game of Thrones themed art swap at Ten Paces & Draw. I sent the sketch of Ygritte below and got back one of Daenerys and her dragons. It was pretty awesome to draw one of my favorite characters from the books, and now I can't seem to stop sketching every lady on GOT.

The leopard coat

Another gouache girl from my new sketchbook. Painting leopard print is fun!

On a different note, I'm currently reading and loving Relish, the latest graphic novel by Lucky Knisley. I'm a big fan of her work (I have the "Cat Moves" poster at home and It's awesome) so when I heard she was finally releasing this memoir I just had to get it. I was raised by foodies in a culture that praises food above anything else, so I'm feeling very identified with some of the parts of the book. What are you reading right now?

I just finished knitting this vest, right on time for spring. It's perfect for layering, and cozy without being too warm. The pattern is Boardwalk by Heidi Kirrmaier, from the Brooklyn Tweed Wool People collection.

Lots of girls live in my new sketchbook, made out of gouache. This one appeared a couple days ago, singing the blues, inspired by this amazing photo set.

Random film photos

I finally scanned my latest roll of film. It's always fun to find these random photos I've taken in the studio and had completely forgotten about. In the third one, my drawing board had already arrived from the UK and Maggie decided it was a good place to sit like a lady. Then she had to make up for it with her silly signature box pose. She just loves having her picture taken, can you tell? :D

Hello spring!

Here's the first page of my new sketchbook, I was only saying hello to spring with gouache (I'm enjoying this medium more and more each day). Despite my allergies, spring is my favorite season. It means new life and so does the white page of a new sketchbook :)

By the way, this illustration is now available as a print / tote bag / throw pillow and other formats in my Society6 store. And using this link you get free worldwide shipping until Sunday 14th!
