Ask me anything   About the Blog (and a bit about the blogger)   

Central Floridian - photographer, illustrator, and (occasionally) very bad writer. This blog is mostly for my drawings and non-photographic-related creative-ish stuff.

So recently, I’ve been doing some sketches for a potential project for a local store that is owned by a couple who I dearly love - this one was one of my favorites. Their store is a midcentury modern store, and we share a love of Catherineholm enamelware, so naturally all the sketches are like, all involving Catherineholm stuff and motives.

So this is like  a solar system thing. I normally don’t go for “cute,” but I liked this.

Reposting this somewhat old sketch. It’s a favorite of mine, but it relates to a project I’ve had going for a very long time that’s kind of revived itself as of late, and I had to refer back to this, and it made me think how much I liked this one.

Lunchbreak sketch from a few days ago. Figured a fresh post would be nice.

More ideas for using the two vintage Indian silk saris that arrived yesterday. This particular one I ordered as I liked these scalloped stripes on the pallu of the sari. I could see pinking them out and using them on an 1850s bone folder in a telegram-type treatment. The idea in using these on nineteenth-century frames would be that the finished product would say “I’m a woven en disposition silk cover from the 1850s” rather than saying “Hi, I’m a sari fabric.” But who knows.

A while back I ordered some vintage Indian silk saris with the idea of using them for parasol covers - they arrived today from Mumbai and this one I already have one (of many) ideas for. I just need the parasol frames to execute them on.

The (admittedly very light) sketch and its resulting bit of frippery that I did as a present to a good friend a while back, based on nineteenth century examples, and kind of adapted with bits of turquoise and French Jet (or, black glass.). The finished product is shown in a fitted box I also made for the piece.

A quick sketch of what Anna’s parasol probably looked like when new - save for the tassels, which when I did this I didn’t KNOW that they were originally ivory, but - you know - details, details.

Sketch for an eventual pen-and-ink-and-watercolor “sampler” type idea that I want to do for my own place. It’s Regretsy-inspired. It was also freehand, so that accounts for the slight wonkiness and perhaps, inconsistencies in the ornamentation within the letters themselves.
Govern yourself accordingly.

I randomly thought of this movie today - and remembered I had this crappy-fast sketch I did a while back. I want to revisit this quote later.
