I've found a new podcast I've become slightly obsessed with called Illusionoid. It's Canadian (like me, eh) and it's improvised sci-fi in an old-timey kind of radio show way. I had to try my hand at Prof. Brambleberry and Prof. Carstairs from The Lucifer Device episode.
Then I tried Prof. Carstairs on his own. I seem to have a thing with drawing huge heads and hands. I can adjust that when I colour things in vectors but no such luck when inking by hand! Ha! Big heads.

Since I can't seem to find a book that has those amazing black and white photos of people from the 1950s posing for what has to be advertising, I bought myself a book called Women & Hats to draw from. I bought myself a nice little sketchbook with cream coloured paper, some sepia colour ink and a new brush to go with it too.
These two ladies are the first I've managed to capture. Trust me when I say the women don't look this shocked and confused in the book. Bored, maybe. These two just turned out like deer in the headlights. Maybe that's telling of my state of mind when I drew them?

I finally found time and energy (meaning I felt like it) to add a lot of my prints to Etsy. I'm trying to clear out some older prints to make room for new ones. I hope. Clearing my head and clearing my storage bin kinda go hand in hand.
