I used to be, once upon a time, and avid and voracious reader. Although these past few years, I find that I can barely make it past a few chapters. I’ve got five or so books started but left untouched and it’s quite sad.

Some 1830s inspired stuff, Ive been watching Gentleman Jack, and while I began with hating the mutton sleeves and ridiculous looking top nots, they’re growing on me. I do envy the necklines and fluffy-ness of the dresses though.
Please excuse the angle I took the photo.

More washi tape adventures, this time a very monochromatic palette of blush tones and pinks, with a pop of blue.

Managed to make something I’m happy with. This has been a final product of the many tools I’ve been playing with. The jacket is washi tape, all the colours are a mix of Copic Markers and Kuretake Markers, and the line work is all done with a ballpoint pen, and I could not be happier.

I’m not the greatest at drawing expressive faces, but I think hers is saying “Piss Off” to someone. Which kind of embodies the mood I’ve been dealing with for a couple of months now (mostly caused by the dumpster fire I work at).
I just haven’t been creating because of it, and it’s making me upset because I can’t create. Also unless my efforts to create change for myself work, I likely won’t be contributing much to Inktober this year which makes me quite sad.
