Late Night Secret: I had a bit of a crush on Beetlejuice. I feel like eventually his antics would’ve gotten on my nerves, but I loved his spontaneity and “I-don’t-give-a-fuck” attitude. Also was a fan of his style.
No, I’m not drunk right now.
PS: This awesome piece of art is by a man named Mike Mitchell.

Via thenakedpainterThe Sketches of Alphonse Mucha. Note his beautiful linework and the intricate drapery, the sketches of Mucha give us a powerful insight into his creative process.

These beautiful images are from an adaptation of Dracula, which is illustrated by Anne Yvonne Gilbert. The instant I saw it in a bookstore, I knew I had to be mine.

From fyodorpavlov, some gorgeous illustrations. I especially like the gentleman in the stripey waistcoat, and the silver-haired gent. 

Some stress had built up over the last couple of weeks and jumped out at me suddenly at the end of last week, so I decided to not work on anything serious and just make some self-indulgent little drawings. The result was these 2.5 by 3.5 miniatures. I haven’t worked on watercolor paper in literally years, and I don’t really know how painting tiny details on paper I haven’t had practice on since forever is relaxing, but it worked for me.

The silver fox ended up looking like Vincent Price, and the brunette in the red waistcoat is sporting the haircut I described to my husband as “the hair that was the downfall of public school masters for centuries.” He told me the blond was grown-up Tadzio. I’ll be selling these babies at MoCCA! Maybe I should do portraits of ladies too.
