I post what I like and what I draw in my spare time.
And also my hungry cat.
My tumblr for design work [x]

My friend came across these GoT snowflake patterns and told me to make them, so I did. I’m going to make more later.
Patterns by Krystal Higgins.
A little piece on Eggnog this week in today’s Swerve Magazine.
The glorious work of Tyrus Wong is unparalleled. It was his lush pastels that served as the driving force behind Bambi, where he was the lead artist on the film. Prior to Wong’s contributions, the logistics of managing the detailed nuance of a forest setting (millions of leaves!) was posing a problem, but Wong’s gorgeous, inventive minimalist approach was the perfect solution and provides the film its unique style and warm, textured feel.
There were so many beautiful masks in TheArtofMask’s shop that I couldn’t just feature one!
"All of my masks are paper mache and made to be worn. I use an imported 100% wool paper that makes the mask durable yet lightweight. All of the embellishments (leaves, flowers, etc.) with either wool or parchment papers. Things like berries, rose hips, and acorns are made with paper clay."
…at the appointed time Loki lured Idunn out of Ásgard into a certain wood, saying that he had found such apples as would seem to her of great virtue, and prayed that she would have her apples with her and compare them with these. Then Thjazi the giant came there in his eagle’s plumage and took Idunn and flew away with her, off into Thrymheimr to his abode.
The third and final piece to add to my small body of work that is a celebration of Golden Age story book illustration (with norse mythology as my subject). This is the abduction if Idunn, the goddess whose apples suply all other gods with eternal youth. Like the Murder of Baldr, Loki did not directly kidnap Idunn (nor murder Baldr, technically) but I wanted to have him being direct again. He was greatly responsible for both events in the mythos.

This daily pencil is whipped by Stephanie Baxter, a young freelance illustrator living & working in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Like most Illustrators, Steph is happiest with a pencil, a piece of paper & a hot cup of tea (milk, no sugar). She works with pens, ink and digitally. Her work is kind of special and very typography based, so we decided to pick her out and show her awesome work.
