Random thoughts and bits of life of a coffee loving artist

Should be asleep but have pencil in hand

It's 12:46 in the morning right now and I really should be tossing my weary body into my bed right now but instead, what am I doing? Fighting with concept sketches for group 4 of my bookmarks. I originally had the idea of doing something along the lines of classic tattoo art or pin up girls from the 1940s and 50s. Then had the idea of doing a combination of Alice in Wonderland/ Through the Looking Glass. Even as I started on the sketches, changed my mind again not even half way through. What did I finally decide on as a theme? Fairy tales! The first one is going to be Alice in Wonderland, followed by Snow White and the Princess & the Frog. Haven't quite figured out what the fourth design is going to be yet but I'm sure something will come to me. As 1 o'clock is creeping up ever closer, think that I seriously need to listen to my body and call it a 'night' so that I have some energy in a couple of hours to get some work done and whittle my pile of projects down a bit.


  1. I love your bookmarks. This seems like an awesome series concept, literary in premise and maybe they'll be used in the corresponding book. Can't wait to see the results.

    1. Thanks.. I have been doodling and erasing this page of designs off and on for about a week now so it's driving me nuts lol
