Well I turned in my finished book illustrations on Friday and I'm pretty excited to have a few days to work on some fun stuff:  new things for my shop, my portfolio and yes, even this little blog.  I've been rather neglectful in recent months so I'll be starting off next week with some giveaways and some news on sales that will continue through the end of the year.  Fun stuff!  

For now, here's a quick 30 minute doodle that I started my day off with:  

Inspired by this 2005 photo of Gemma Ward in Italian Vogue.  Love it!
