Damask and Dark


My cage has many rooms

Damask and dark

nothing sings here

not even my lark

Based on a line from the Sweeney Todd song Green Finch and Linnet Bird, I present to you, Damask and Dark. That damask pattern took forever to hand paint. Hand cramp!

Illustration Friday - Intricate


The theme is intricate for this illustration friday and I can't think of anything better than an ornate hair-did. So, allow me to introduce Reinette. Don't ask about the eye patch.
