do you ever think about toes?

I think about toes.  I love the bony parts of people's bodies, including hands and feet.  The knobblier the better.  This lovely pair belong to my friend Lily's boyfriend, who was kind enough to sit still so I could draw them.  I'm completely in love with how long his toes are, it's like an extra set of fingers!

Tragically, this one is mine.  Those are blisters.  If shoes are designed to be worn with socks you really should wear them with socks, as it turns out.

(Yes, I sketched my blisters.  What else am I supposed to do after 3 years of art school?)

Gorse and Skullgirl

Until I get round to scanning some of my work for my final projects at university, I thought you'd like to see some more children's work.  These are Gorse and Hephzibah, who've appeared before, and Skullgirl who you should recognise from the header.  She has a name now, Lamentation Obedience, as in 'people lament your existence and it's your place to be unquestioningly obedient.'

Journal Pictures

Since I realised the other day that I update my personal blog even more infrequently than this one whenever I'm busy (which kind of defeats the point since people who worry about me, like my mum, start bugging me for news) I thought I'd start uploading my journal illustrations on flickr instead.  I might even get really wild and put some of the better ones on here, but for now you can find all the ones I've put up so far in handy little sets over there.
