Vision, 3.5x5 inches. Graphite on paper.

I've been a bad girl. I dove into reading Filth the past few days. It's a book about a misogynist pig of a cop. A friend let me borrow the book a while back, and I kept putting off reading it. I didn't even put it on my reading list. I read the first chapter when I got the book. It didn't intrigue me.

Many months later, I've entered a sort of "blue period" in my work. I've been more interested in what's dark. I've been researching the twenties and prohibition.

And now I've been diving back into writing. I made a promise over on twitter that I'd post a story up here next week. I want to post the story I'm working on now. It's my best yet. But no matter what, a story will be posted, whether this is complete or not.


  1. Lovely picture, I love how sensitively you've drawn the hair and that tiny little skull hair pin is really cute.
    Look forward to reading your story :)

  2. Thank you! I have a lot of writing to go, so it may be posted late next week, haha.

    Also, more pencil drawings and dames to come.

    (I'm so obsessed with hair pins. I used to have two skull & bow hair pins I'd wear everyday until they broke.)
