For Rumpelstiltskin Is My Name!!!

Hide your fine jewelry and first born ...

I had forgotten how creepy Rumpelstiltskin can be!  I had a VHS when I was little that had this fairytale on it and he was a gangly little man, but in this version he wanted to cook the Queen's baby . . . apparently baby was his sandwich meat of choice.  So I present to you the enigmatic carnivorous Rumpelstiltskin.

Mother Goose Fever

So I've had a brain storming week . . . and it was storming fairy tales and nursery rhymes.  So my first addition to my nursery rhyme extravaganza is Goldilocks and the Three Bears . . . I think I'm going to enjoy this.

Up next . . . the infamous, enigmatic, manipulative Rumpelstiltskin

Photoshop Epiphany

Guess you suddenly had a break through with Photoshop!  Months and months of work have finally paid off.  I don't know what snapped but I had a look at Priscilla Wong's blog ( ) and got completely inspired to crack the watercolor code.  So thank you Priscilla for having a blog!

So I decided to render Levi and Lola.  Since then I've started drawing up the characters from The Great Gatsby.  High School wasn't good for many things, but one thing it was good for was introducing me to so many amazing books . . . Very tempted to design all the characters from my favorite "High School" novels.  I think Ender's Game will be next . . .
