"The Bedroom"

Second illustration (of twelve) for Sketchy by serpentynka. All of my drawings for this story can be found at #sketchy.

Today during a short bicycle ride I encountered a horse with fascinating eyes.

"The Café"

First illustration (of twelve) for serpentynka's brillianty detailled fanfic Sketchy.

I hope to finish more drawings – for this story and my own – in the next couple of days before school starts again, and hopefully manage a fanfic update, too, either of Enigma or Over Earth and Under Earth (the latter looking more likely).

Some majestic deer for bennyslegs, to help with the back pain.

This print was in my grandparents’ house which we are currently clearing as it’s been sold. Both my maternal grandparents are over 90, and the print is even older. In the house there are also a number of really beautiful pieces of furniture, and what’s most fascinating, authentic clothing belonging to their parents from the 1910s and 1920s, stacks of old photos, and letters and postcards written during both World Wars, some of which are difficult to read now as they use the “Sütterlin” script which fell out of use after WWII.

I also found bank notes from the 1920s. Back then inflation was high in Germany, meaning that some notes, printed on cheap paper, have values like 10 Million Mark printed on them. If you were lucky, you got a loaf of bread for one such note back in the day.

Serpentyna’s amazing story Sketchy has already inspired me to create cover art. Having khorazir​ to model for me in one of the locations used in the story only further pushed those buttons …

I’m currently working on twelve illustrations for the story as commissioned by the author. Hope to post the first one tonight.
