Q
I saw your comment on Nina-Serena's answer to my question, and I must say I completely agree. There was much more going on and I simply lost the motivation to do anything, which included drawing. If someone you know has depression then they should get help. The problem usually lies within ones self, not the art. That and the fact that when you're an artist you have an image of what you want and usually it doesn't come out that way, which is why people struggle with their own creations. Good-day!

Exactly :) 

 I have depression myself so I never under estimate any feelings of self doubt that I see in others. What’s usually harmless can sometimes develop into something more!

My first charity Commission for Autism Awareness Day, also known as Onsie Wednesday!
This is for the lovely saetje of her characters Veil (the shy blue guy) and Gemini (the adorable huggable girl). I’ve been following the development of these characters for a long time, so how happy I was to get to draw them both <3
The money for these onsie-themed commissions is all going to charity, and I still have 6 slots left at £10/$17 each! If anyone wants to commish a picture and help raise awareness of autism, then send me a note or maybe reblog to pass on the message :3

Well, dude, if it's any consolation I think your drawings this year have been great! Tonight's a night of celebration, and if you're spending it drawing, it shows that you're celebrating your art, and I think that's really really cool! Happy New Years! :D
A

Cheers bud! You too! :D

Considering my Welsh blood it is no surprise that this is a tradition in South Wales…
“‘A Welsh language custom marking the darkest days of midwinter, the Mari Lwyd tradition of parading a horse’s skull in pubs &amp; people’s houses continues to this day in South Wales around New Year. A song is sung &amp; insults exchanged in battle of wits known as ‘pwnco’.’
From the book ‘Folk Archive’. 2000.”

I just found out that Sheilah Beckett- an amazing illustrator who has managed to stay active for the better part of the last century- just passed away this November at the admirable age of 100.

I only discovered her work earlier this year, but I fell in love with it almost immediately- it’s sexy, it’s stylish, and it has an aesthetic sensibility that manages to be timeless and relevant even by modern standards.  I see so much of what I want to be in her work- her flawless lineart, her stylization of form and shape, her impeccable eye for lavish historical costumes.  It’s crazy good.

We owe so much to the pioneering female illustrators who came before us- if you haven’t seen her work before, try to take a moment out of your day to look her up, like her facebook page, revel in her raw talent, then get out there and make some art! We’re part of a noble and damn proud tradition, and we owe her that much. :)
