Sketch du Jour: Cover girl

Three days! Three days I haven't posted on here, please accept my apologies. I'll catch up this weekend, but right now, my hands hurt too much for me to type or sketch, so I'll keep this short. Thanks for your indulgence.

This sketch is based off of Kamil Vojnar's illustration for the book, Lily's Crossing by Patricia Reilly Giff, an extremely talented author! I worked on it for about ten minutes before I had to do something else, so this is all I got done, again with my masochistic pen instead of an eraseable pencil.

I've been thinking of another merman painting, so when I have a sketch for that I'll post it. I had planned on making the sketch tonight, but I have to be careful or the tendinitis in my wrists will flare up (I got it from doing sign language interpreting in a sixth grade classroom), so it's cold packs and maybe watching The Devil Wears Prada tonight. I'll make up for the missing sketches, too.

In the meantime, yes, you know it already: go forth, check out, and spread the word about my new merchandise shop! There are new Manifest Destiny magnets that I'm sure you or a friend would love to have (aren't magnets magical?)--they're great for fridges, memos, and as a reminder that our fate is in our own hands.

Best,

I.
