This weekend is being put to excellent use by my own standards. I bumped into my dad (not a “sugar dating” related euphemism) and he bought me a new sketchbook from Tiger.
Lots of illustrations are being illustrated. Here are two of those.
The first illustration is of a “changeling”, they’re forever young human beings that live with the fairies – who’ve been replaced by real fey. So – you might see a person in fairyland and their real identity has been stolen by a fairy!
The second illustration is of two mermaids. Heavily inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s Little Mermaid book sitting beside me.
I had to use the train on the way back to Ealing and I got a few pages into Tithe. You should read Tithe. I’m inspired by Tithe right now. You aren’t too cool for the kinds of books written for teenage girls, are you? Also I think the first illustration was a little bit inspired by this music video
The mermaid scribble is becoming this. How fun
The caption is “sexy maid must’ve been our look first”
Cos, they’re mermaids. Do you get it..? (Doesn’t the one in shimmering pink look like Haifa?)
Okay they’ve morphed into the Technocats (The Choupettes)
And now she looks like a lion Rizzo (Grease)
It’s now 4:17 AM and it’d be sensible to sleep
It’s 5:53 AM
And apparently I can’t pick an eye style so we’re going with both.
I was going for a platinum blonde Isabella Blow but we’ve got a whole load of iconic features going on. It’s sort of very Pink Panther opening sequence kinda weird
